I am not exactly sure. I believe I took CSE 221, 222, and 321
staring in AU 97, but I could be off a little bit. I think at
the time 321 was still a pilot course. All three were using C++
then. I seem to recall one being still a pilot course anyway.
Before that I think it was still Modula-2 for all three. I believe
it was the '96-97 time frame when this switched to using C++ for
all of them. That's all I know about the switch unfortunately.
