2 Purpose of this AssignmentIndexup to index

This assignment requires all the numbered Prerequisites mentioned above.

  1. Learn from your mistakes on Midterm Test #1 PDF.
  2. Submit a plain text assignment05.txt answer file via Blackboard.

3 Introduction and OverviewIndexup to index

  1. Make sure you have all the numbered Prerequisites (above) before you begin.

  2. Create a new plain text answer file named assignment05.txt (on Windows or on Linux - you choose). For every question that you answered incorrectly on the first midterm test, reproduce in the answer file (1) the question you got wrong (from your own question sheet) and (2) the correct answer to the question. (If you had no incorrect answers, upload an empty answer file. If you missed the test, you have to copy the entire test and answer every question.)

  3. Underneath each question and correct answer in your answer file, indicate where in the Class Notes (which section of which Class Notes file) you can learn how to generate this correct answer. No marks are awarded unless your source for getting the answer is shown. Show me that you know where in the notes the answer comes from. For example:

    Q5. How do you recursively remove a non-empty directory?
    Answer: rm -r
    Source: Worksheet 3 section 5 rm command

    You can copy-and-paste each question and the correct answer into your answer file. You must do your own work finding where the correct answer can be found. Marks are awarded for original typed work for the source, not for copy-and-paste from your friends. Any source answers that are found to be copy-and-paste from some other document will require you to resubmit the entire lab as hand-written and will result in a charge of plagiarism or academic fraud as well. Do your own research; type your own answer locations; no copy-and-paste.

    In this assignment, you are only answering the questions that you got wrong on the midterm test, not all the questions. Just the ones you got wrong.

  4. Submit your answer file using file name assignment05.txt (use the exact name) before the due date.

Use the exact file name given above. Upload only one single file of plain text, not HTML, not MSWord. No fonts, no word-processing. Plain text only.

Did I mention that the format is plain text (suitable for VIM/Nano/Pico/Gedit or Notepad)?


No marks are awarded for submitting under the wrong assignment number or for using the wrong file name. Use the exact name given above.

WARNING: Some inattentive students don’t read all these words. Don’t make that mistake! Be exact.
