Assignment 1

Due Aug 27 on line

Part of the homework for CS:2820, Fall 2020
by Douglas W. Jones
THE UNIVERSITY OF IOWA Department of Computer Science

Follow the instructions for obtaining a CLAS Linux account, and then use fastx to access that account, and open a shell window where you can execute the following shell command:

     ~dwjones/2820log xxxx
Where dwjones is Professor Jones's Hawkid because the 2820log command is one installed in his home directory, and xxxx is the section number of your discussion section. The 2820 command will tell you if it was successful and it will automatically log the fact that you completed this assignment. Repeating the exercise after you are successful is harmless but also pointless.

Some students have had real difficulty with the command line in the past and needed significant help, so the discussion section Wednesday will be spent, in significant part, in walking you through this exercise.
