|Nov 29, 2001||The last assignment has been posted.|
|Nov 26, 2001|| The formatting requirement in assignment
eleven has been relaxed--you need not use "|" or "-", but your output
should be formatted to look like a magic square and should not have extra
In answer to the question asked in class, for some code which might give you a hint how to do the printing see the DO loops on page 597.
|Nov 21, 2001||Happy Thanksgiving!! |
An extra credit question has been posted on the assignments page
|Nov 21, 2001||Note on Office Hours:
Sughosh was unable to hold office hours today, Wednesday 9am -10 am.
Instead he will be having office hours today, Wednesday 12:30pm - 1:30pm
|Nov 20, 2001||A question was asked in class about backwards sorting of negative numbers. Your program should not do this--check the TYPES of the arguments sent to the sort subroutine. I saw a similar case this afternoon. The problem was mis-matched types. Also be certain that all variables are correctly declared.|
|Nov 18, 2001||The eleventh assignment has been posted.|
|Nov 16, 2001||Some students asked some questions about programming assignment
10 after class today that require explanation.
This program should be menu-driven. This means that you need to present the user with a list of options. It is likely that one option is to quit the program.
This is to be a multi-level menu-driven program. This means that the choice of certain options will in some cases lead to additional menu You should NOT do ANY of the functions unless the user requests them. i.e. Do not find the mean and standard deviation unless the user chooses this option. Do NOT sort the list unless the user chooses this option. etc. This means that if a user presents an unsorted list and asks to find some element in the list-- what should be returned is the position of the element in the unsorted list. If the user sorts the list first and then asks to find some element, then the position of the element is the position in the SORTED list. Thus, as was mentioned in class, the order that the user chooses the options determines the outcome.
A suggestion: This program is most easily done with subrountines which passes the array, array size, etc as one of the arguments. See the SELSORT example.
Be very careful to declare ALL variables used in the main program in the main program and all variables used in each subprogram in each subprogram. In addition to losing credit on the assignment, if you forget to do certain declarations your program may still compile correctly but may give weird output.
Because of this clarification, the deadline for programming assignment 10 has been extended AGAIN to Wednesday, November 21, however completed programs may be submitted on Monday.
Again, you may assume that no file will have more than 1000 entries for this assignment.

|Nov 14, 2001||The deadline for programming assignment 10 has been extended to
Monday, November 19.
You may assume that no file will have more than 1000 entries for this assignment.
