Welcome to CS 322!


Lecture Assignment 01

Due at the start of class, Wednesday, February 3.

You need not submit answers to these questions, but you will have a chance to ask questions about them at the start of class.

  1. SG&G 1.1, p. 42
  2. SG&G 1.5, p. 42

Please submit answers to these questions either as a hard copy (typeset or handwritten are OK) or by email to jteresco AT by the start of class. We will discuss these questions at the start of class, so no late submissions are accepted.

  1. Send me mail at jteresco AT with a brief (a couple sentences) indication of your level of experience with the Unix operating system and its variants, plus a list of other operating systems you have used. Also include a list of programming languages you have used and your proficiency in each, and anything else you'd like me to know about your background coming in.
  2. SG&G 1.13, p. 43

Please read Chapters 1 and 2 of SG&G and email me with or come to class on Wednesday with any questions about the topics covered. If there are no questions, I will assume that it all makes sense and we will only skim over the topics during class.
