Lecture 15: Semaphore Implementations
Date: Monday, March 10, 2008


Lecture Assignment

Due at the start of class, Monday, March 24.

Read Section 6.7 in SG&G about monitors, and do the following questions at the end of the chapter.

SG&G 6.12, 6.13, 6.16

In question 6.12, do not let the term "portions" confuse you. A portion is essentially a buffer entry (an int in our class examples).

Our next topic is Unix Systems Programming in preparation for the Unix shell project. There are no new readings from SG&G at this time.
