Programming Challenge #14: PERSONAL INFORMATION | Starting Out With C++ | Chapter 2

Programming Challenge #14: PERSONAL INFORMATION | Starting Out With C++ | Chapter 2 comes from the “Review Questions and Exercises” section at the end of Chapter 2 in Tony Gaddis’ book Starting Out With C++ : From Control Structures Through Objects/8th Edition.

>_ Problem

Write a program that displays the following pieces of information, each on a separate line:

  • Your name
  • Your address, with city, state, and ZIP code
  • Your telephone number
  • Your college major

Use only a single cout statement to display all of this information.

>_ Solution

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main()
    string name = "Jesus Hilario Hernandez",
           address = "1234 29th Lane, Grand, Texas 73226",
           phone = "421-834-9879",
           major = "Computer Science";

    cout << endl;
    cout << "Name: "          << name << endl;
    cout << "Address: "       << address << endl;
    cout << "Telephone #: "   << phone << endl;
    cout << "College Major: " << major << endl;
    cout << endl;

    return 0;

>_ Topics

2.1  The Parts of a C++ Program

CONCEPT: C++ programs have parts and components that serve specific purposes.

2.2  The cout Object

CONCEPT: Use the cout object to display information on the computer’s screen.

2.3  The #include Directive

CONCEPT: The #include directive causes the contents of another file to be inserted into the program.

2.4  Variables and Literals

CONCEPT: Variables represent storage locations in the computer’s memory, while literals are constant values that are assigned to variables.

2.5  Identifiers

CONCEPT: Choose variable names that indicate what the variables are used for.

2.8  The C++ string Class

CONCEPT: Standard C++ provides a special data type for storing and working with

2.12 Variable Assignments and Initialization

CONCEPT: An assignment operation assigns, or copies, a value into a variable. When a value is assigned to a variable as part of the variable’s definition, it is called an initialization.

2.13 Scope

CONCEPT: A variable’s scope is the part of the program that has access to the variable.

2.17 Programming Style

CONCEPT: Programming style refers to the way a programmer uses identifiers, spaces, tabs, blank lines, and punctuation characters to visually arrange a program’s source code. These are some, but not all, of the elements of programming style.
