INFO2050 - Advanced computer programming
Applications programming is a race between software engineers, who strive to produce idiot-proof programs, and the universe which strives to produce bigger idiots. So far the Universe is winning.

Supplementary materialVisual Algo is a site which illustrates many algorithms and data structures of the course. In addition, in the training section, you can to create online quizz on those topics to test your knowledge.
Firstly, you need to create an account through the registration page.
Then you can connect to the machines thanks to SSH with the following command:
loginby your actual login and
xxby a machine number (
xx=01..25). SSH will open a terminal on the remote machine. For windows user, the PuTTY utility will mimic SSH behaviour.
Several solutions are available to ship source code to and from the ms8xx machines.
- FileZilla: a graphic, cross-platform FTP client
scp: a command line utility to transfert file from/to remote hosts (it works much like the
rsync: a command line utility to synchronize remote files
sshfs: a command line utility to "mount" a remote directory
- Read the man page (so you can say you have)
- Try the help flags
-h, --help(you might even get useful information)
- Google your questions or get a succinct tutorial (others have stumbled on the same difficulties, let them help you)
- Script the data transferts, compilation steps, testing suite (human memory is the most expensive)
Oh, and be sure to
chmod your home folder to prevent others from messing
with your files.
