Data Input & Manipulation using MVC++
Posted on 2009-04-21
I am having a 'dont know where to start' issue. I am a graduate with a little C++ experience. So i may as well have none. I have been reading avidly Object Orienated programming with C++ texts and I am getting to a point where I want to start planning and drawing proposed class diagrams for internal tool to process a plethora of different log files (.txt).
These log files are extremely large and the data in it is unformatte.I am tasked at producing a programme that will allow the user to extract all the relevant log information and format it in a way that would be suitable for statistical analysis. There are several of these files, and the ideal product of the system would be a single amalgamated storage unit that would be enable the detailed statisitcal analysis and numerical processing of the data witin it.
The next part of the system is an analysis tool that will plot charts and throw out numbers depending on user preferences. All driven from the data that has been sorted from system 1.
What I am really after is some advice with regard to the OOP design. How I might start to think of structuring the programme, the sort of classes and iinvaluable library functions about. I just need something to kick start this...
Perhaps a link, a book or some text you think could help a novice user with a small amount of experience....I really need something, I do have Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Pro - which should speed up development.
Any suggestions would be great !
