R.M.S. Titanic, a C++ STL Tutorial, C Progamming Course, and a Beginner's Guide to VMS

Can't get much more eclectic than that.

R.M.S. Titanic Titanic

A brief history of the R.M.S. Titanic, a collection of
Titanic Web Sites, photographs of surviving Titanic memorials, unique pictures from James Cameron's film set, plus  a Titanic Bibliography<.

The Titanic Memorials Page has photographs of the Titanic Memorial Lighthouse in New York, pictures of the last White Star Line ship, the Nomadic in Paris, and photographs of actual wood panels and fittings from the Olympic, which now grace the Olympic Suite of the White Swan Hotel in Alnwick, England, as they are now. Also shown are the Women's Memorial in Washington D.C., and the Bandsmen's Memorial in Australia. Check out my Titanic pages

VMS Tutorial

A quick tutorial on Digital Equipment Corporations OpenVMS operating system. No, it isn't Unix.

Kara's C++ STL Tutorial

Kara's C Programming Course

The C++ Standard Template Library, generally referred to as the STL, saves you, the programmer, from having to re-invent the wheel. This course is aimed at programmers who have reasonable familiarity with the C++ programming language, and know about classes, constructors and the like. Avoiding esoteric functionality, the examples have been written to clearly demonstrate STL features. The sample programs also use Standard Library (as distinct from Standard Template Library) features like fstream and iostream, providing examples of how to use these.

​Head over to the STL Tutorial
This course is intended to help a beginner start programming in C, but should provide a reasonable introduction to C for people who have used any programming language before. There are a number of program examples, copies of which you can download as karas_c_examples.zip.
