Please read all of this information very carefully. If you have any questions, the earlier you ask, the better. These policies apply to all work submitted in this course unless otherwise noted on a specific assignment. The point of these policies is to ensure you get the credit you deserve for your work, getting it to the grader and back to you in a timely fashion, so please double-check them before you submit anything.
Work is due at the beginning of class on the posted due
date. You are required to submit two identical copies your
work: one copy via computer using the
(notes below) and another as paper printouts in class.
Please make sure your full name, your CSE login, your section, and the assignment number appears at the top of each file you submit to ensure your printouts do not get lost. (See example below.) For code files, include this information in a comment header for each file.

Output showing code testing should show both how code is invoked and the resulting output in a plain text file. (See tips below.) Unless otherwise instructed, please put all output in one file with clear headings for separate functions or parts of the output.
For written work, try to use the most platform-independent, lightweight format possible. Plain text should be just fine for most of the written work in this course. (Emacs users, Meta-Q is your friend.)
See the man page for
turnin for instructions on how to
submit files via computer. (On an instructional
man turnin or read
it on the web.)
To ensure readability, make sure to print both code and output using a
fixed space font like Courier, rather than Times or Arial, where some characters
(e.g., 'i') occupy less width than others (e.g., 'M'). For Java with
Eclipse, the default font will do what you want. You can print source text
from Eclipse using the 'print' command. For other languages, you can do
this by printing plain text files from UNIX using
enscript, as described below or from Windows using
Grading of code will primarily be based on these main criteria:
If your code satisfies all of the above requirements, you can expect to get a very good grade.
In Eclipse, you can copy and paste out of the Console window after running your code.
For other languages, when running under linux you can copy and paste out
of terminal windows after running your code. Unless you have multiple
screens worth of output, this is the recommended and probably easiest
method. If you use emacs, you can run your code from a shell started
inside emacs (Meta-X shell), facilitating copying and pasting. Regardless
of your choice of editor, you can also run a special shell whose trancript
is saved in a file using the useful
script program (see man
page). With interpreted languages like Miranda, consider defining test
functions and data so you don't have to type much to generate output.
Finally, many interpreted languages support redirection of output or
writing a session transcript to a file, so check your documentation.
When printing from UNIX with
lpr, cut paper use by as
much as 50% by using the
-Zduplex flag to print
two-sided. Save another page by using
-h flag to skip
the header page and grab your printout right away. (...and even if
you don't, it'll have your name, section, and assignment number at the
top anyway, right?) See the man pages for
for more information.
This is probably covered in an ACM tutorial, but if you're in Sieg
329 or another CSE lab, you can print to the printer in the room by
adding something like
-Pps329 to your
