The first handout is available in postscript and PDF formats. There will be no other paper handouts -- everything else will be web-based.
A class message board is now available. Be sure to use it for various Q&A and any class-related discussions. There are some clarifications about the assignment there already.
If you haven't turned in the signed and turned in the class cheating
policy form, please do so. You will not receive a
grade in this class unless you do so; if I have received your form, I
have sent email acknowledging its receipt (and also testing the class
mailing list). This was done at

You should turn in your homework by sending it to me as email. For multi-file handins, tar(1) it up first and send it as a MIME encapsulation. Remember to use the mail address firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may not use the system(3s) library routine. Instead, use system calls directly.
Note: in the lecture summaries you will find hyperlinks to on-line manual pages. This is a web server that is running on a machine that is configured differently from the ACS machines that your OCE accounts are on, so there may be some differences in the commands that are being described. When in doubt, go to a local shell window and use the man command to look at the manual pages on the local machine.
