Homework Submission Guidelines

The submission for each homework should include the following files:

1. A (plain ascii) README file including:

  • your name;
  • a list and description of all files you are submitting;
  • a full description of your program and how to run it, including any innovations or clever features we might otherwise not appreciate
  • all files needed to run your program including source and any data files
  • 2. To submit your homework:

                            $ tar cvf - . | compress | uuencode temp_file | Mail -s "submit cs4705 hwN" smaskey@cs.columbia.edu

              where N is the homework number (e.g. for Homework 2 this would be "hw2")

    After a short time you will get an automatic acknowledgement of your submission. Please note:

    If you submit once, and then decide to submit again, your second submission will overwrite the first. All the files from your first submission will automatically be wiped out.
