List of assignments:
This page contains the assignments for the semester, along with
the dates on which they are due. The due dates are strict; it is
not possible to hand in assignments late. The assignments are to
be done only when due dates are attached to them. Please be careful
to only do problems which are given specific dates on which they
For the programming assignments, you are asked to use the handin
facility for the executable. To use this facility, you should
type the following:
to obtain a list of the available subdirectories
handin cs535 ass01 file1 file2
to hand in file 1 and file 2 for
handin cs535 ass1
to check whether the files were, in fact, received.
The handin facility should be accessed from the server nova!!!
All programs should be able to compile and run properly in willy
Makefile must be included
A Readme file must be included with brief introduction of the program
and detail instructions on how to run the program
Program running result must be included in Readme file
Submit a blank file which is named as student ID and handin with all
In chapter 1, you are to do 29. This problem is intended to be an
introduction to socket programming. You should first read the
reference socket article for some background
on socket programming. A standard reference for socket programming is
the text UNIX Network Programming:Networking API:vol.1, by Stevens.
You might wish to obtain this text, as it is a valuable reference.
Finally, exercises contains some socket
programming exercises for references. They are used in another course.
To compile your code, use:
gcc prog.c -lnsl -lsocket -lresolv for SUN machines (e.g. Willy)
gcc prog.c for Linux/BSD machines
The due date is Friday, October 5.
Use the hand-in facility for your source code, and put a write up of
the assignment in the drop-off box for cs535 in front of 104N, 105N
and 106N. The write up for the assignment should contain a flow
chart for the logic of the program along with a description of relevant
modules in the program. The source listing should be included and
it should have copious comments. Yes, I do mean copious. Otherwise
the graders will become cranky, and so will I.
The assignment is may be picked up in the TA's office, Lijun Li,
during his office hours:Thursday, 9-11 AM on Thursdays.
