Class Notes

I'm not going to be using slides this semester. General observation is that they tend to be boring, people people to sleep, and discourage people from paying attention in class. I'll post some abbreviated notes at

And I'll also be posting code samples I work on in class on sourceforge, at:

You should be able to connect to the CVS repository at:

Books

For some reason, the campus course system lost the book orders I placed. We'll be using two books also used by the standard CMSC 132 section. The first one is strongly recommended, as there will be readings in that book covering topics to be discussed in class. The second is a good and consise description of the Java programming language, but there are plenty of alternative on-line sources for similar information.

Logistics

We will be using grades.cs.umd.edu and the experimental submit server at http://submit.cs.umd.edu/ex

Your linuxlab account and password is distributed via grades.cs.umd.edu. You will be using the linuxlab account only for class CVS repository.

For your CVS respository, assuming your account is cs132hXXX, use the following:
