Hi guys If I wanted to unde
If I wanted to understand a source code, which one is a good(easiest) place to start given i know very little of object orientated engineering?
I would not recommend going th
I would not recommend going through OpenFOAM source as a beginner. It
uses quite a bit of advanced concepts like templating (w, w/o
inheritance) and others. It would be preferable that you start of with a
book for e.g. Barton and Nackman's Scientific C++ book that introduces
the OO concepts well. Then start of with OpenFOAM source.
What about Doxygen, isn't that
What about Doxygen, isn't that supposed to help understand the class structure etc?
Well... Did Doxygen help you?
Well... Did Doxygen help you? It's propably useful for someone who already knows OO basics.
I've had some help from the book "C++: The core language" by Gregory Satir and Doug Brown. I have the first edition from 1995, but maybe there's a later edition. It deals with the basics, while deliberately avoiding concepts that would only confuse you.
Why not start having a look at icoFoam, for example, having the user guide and programmers guide nearby. From there maybe you can start exploring.
If you are looking for a very
If you are looking for a very general intro, you might take a look at
Bruce Eckel's Thinking in C++
