Duration: (5 Hrs.)

Concept of Virtual functions, Late Binding, Abstract class and pure virtual functions, Virtual Destructors, Virtual base class, Friend function and Static function, Assignment and copy initialization, Copy constructor, This pointer, Concrete classes, Polymorphism and its roles.

Unit 7: Function Templates and Exception Handling

Duration: (4 Hrs.)

Function templates, Function templates with multiple arguments, Class templates, templates and inheritance, Exceptional Handling (Try, throw and catch), Use of exceptional handling.

Unit 8: File handling

Duration: (6 Hrs.)

Stream Class Hierarchy for Console Input /Output, Unformatted Input /Output, Formatted Input/Output with ios Member functions, Formatting with Manipulators, Stream Operator Overloading, File Input/output with Streams, Opening and Closing files, Read/Write from File, 
File Access Pointers and their Manipulators, Sequential and Random Access to File, Testing Errors during File Operations

Laboratory Works:

Students should be able to implement the concepts of Object Oriented Programming using C++ language.
