restricted. You should have received a password in your e-mail.)
The class project will be C/C++ code to
be developed on a UNIX environment. No other programming
language will be accepted and your program must compile and
run with a Makefile
as is on a nunki.usc.edu.
You must be familiar with the UNIX development environment
(vi/pico/emacs, cc/gcc or g++/cxx, make, etc.)
You should use your USC accounts and preferably work on the
Solaris machines in the ISD computer rooms for testing. The
final (submitted) program must run on
nunki.usc.edu because we are going to test it in that environment.
But you should not do there the whole program development, as nunki is a
general purpose server - under heavy use from many students.
Late submissions will receive severe penalties. Due to clock skews,
electronic submissions of projects and homeworks assignments will
be accepted within 15 minutes after the specified deadlines without
penalties. If your submission is beyond the 15 minutes grace period,
you will receive 75% of your grade if your submission
is 15 minutes late beyond the grace period;
you will receive 50% of your grade if your submission
is 30 minutes late beyond the grace period;
you will receive 25% of your grade if your submission
is 45 minutes late beyond the grace period;
and you will receive a score of zero otherwise.
will be timestamped by the submission server and receipts will be
issued. Whether your submission arrived to the server by
the deadline is determined by the timestamp. Please keep
If a student signs up late for this class, he/she is still
required to turn in the warm-up projects on time
or he/she will receive a score of zero for these assignments.
No exceptions! This requirement also applys to students on
the wait list.
The first 2 project assignments are considered warm-ups.
The final project assignment is divided in 2 parts.
You must follow the
Electronic Submission Guidelines
when you submit project assignments.
Please note that this is a brand new procedure and very different
from previous procedures.
