Data types sources of informations

Excercise 1: class for multidimensional (2D) array

Assumptions

• Class should allow to store objects in a dynamic 2D array.

Excercise 2: runners log application

Assumptions

• Application should read data from a text file.
• Each line describes one training.
• Training data are expressed in the form
• Not all training data are obligatory - some of them may be missing.
• The following data are defined
• Training date
• Training time
• Distance
• Time
• Equipment (for example shoes)
• The user should have a menu with options like
• Print total distance
• Print total training time
• Print an average speed
• Print total distence per week
• etc

Hint 1 for the exercises

Simple application which reads some data from a file, creates an array and puts this data into array. Note that the following code is just a hint so it doesn't work as 2D array but as 1D array. Anyway some names and comments related to 2D array were used to help implement desired solution.

Tested with a file

should return something similar to

Hint 2 for the exercises
Assumptions

• Application should read data from a text file.
• Each line describes one training.
• Training data are expressed in the form
• One training data should be represented in application as an object.
• All training data (object) should be collected in an array.

If you want you can use argc and argv arguments to pass file name to the application. To test it in Xcode please visit Scheme Editor settings page (you can use command + shift + <)

1. From the Scheme toolbar menu, choose a scheme.
2. From the same menu, choose Edit Scheme to display the scheme dialog.
3. In the left column, select Run.
4. To specify runtime arguments, click Arguments and then click the Add button.
5. Click Close.
6. Click the Run button or choose Product > Run.
