  • Build on your previous programming experience to learn the basics of the C++ language
  • Use vectors, loops, and I/O libraries to parse data from a file and print an ASCII board. You will use this board in the next lesson for a simplified route planning application
  • Learn about the A* search algorithm.
  • Use your A* search implementation to plan a path throughthe obstacles in the ASCII board. The program will also beable to print the solution to the screen with clean ASCIIformatting.
  • Learn the syntax for C++ language features
  • Complete an overview of header files, pointers, build tools,and classes
