UMD High School Programming Contest Environment

The programming contest was not designed to test your knowledge of features of C++, so students only need to learn C++ sufficiently well to implement their programs efficiently and correctly. We used Microsoft Visual C++ Developer Studio (version 6.0), but students were not allowed to use any Microsoft specific language extensions or template classes.
Another good resource on C++ is from the Advanced Placement Computer Science exam. As an aid to contestants, the APCS C++ Classes will be provided. These classes allow contestants to use existing code for queues, stacks, strings, vectors, and matrices, if they desire.
