Welcome to the CS 445 Submit Page
Please only submit to your own lastname. If your
official university last name has a hyphen, apostrophe, or blank
in it, then remove them and make it from the 26 lowercase letters with no blanks.
Here are some example name conversions:
Vasco de Gamma becomes degamma, Georgia O'Keeffe becomes okeeffe,
Jackie Joyner-Kersee becomes joynerkersee, Martin Luther King Jr becomes kingjr., Isabella Sophia Marulanda Arias de la Vega becomes
marulandaariasdelavega. When in doubt, check what the univesity thinks is your last name.
All times are officially the timestamp of the submitted
code. Due dates are in the Pacific Time Zone.
How Testing and Submission Works
Preliminary testing of your code and submission for grading work roughly like this:
- You submit under your last name. For example "smith". Select an assignment to submit to.
Tar up your sources using tar -cvf tarfile files
so that when the system uses tar -xvf it will unpack your sources. One of the sources
will be a makefile. The testing code assumes that make will build your executable
as specified in the assignment.
- Your submission will be assigned a timestamp and put in the test
queue. When you write me about your code
include this time stamp so I can look at your code. Remember I don't do debugging
- When your turn comes up on the test machine it will unpack your code into an
empty directory and build it using the simple command make.
- Then it will test your executable against
a series of preliminary tests.
done it will make a side-beside comparison with the expected output
and give you other information (probably more than you want to know) will
be mailed back to
you at your uidaho.edu email address.
- When the assignment deadline comes up the code will take the
last submission you submitted before the deadline and run that
against an expanded set of tests. You will be graded on how
well you match the desired output. Make sure you get the format right
or it may look like a mismatch. But you have time to repeatedly test
your code against the preliminary tests before the deadline.
- Submit as many times as you like before the deadline. There is
timelimit on your execution in case you get in an infinite loop. There
is a lines of output limit to prevent you from generating huge files.
Turn around, when not busy, is around 10 minutes. When loaded it can
be 20-30 minutes. Please allow time to test your code before the
deadline. Deadline is based on the local clock Pacific Time.
