CS 1044 Announcements - Summer I 2006
force-add procedure for this course is posted on the
Department web site. I will bring force-add
forms to the first
class meeting, and make decisions about those requests by the following day.
- First-day attendance is mandatory. Students who are enrolled but do
not attend the first class meeting may be purged from the roll, making room
to add other students who request a force-add.
- A lab is available for your use in McB 118. You will need to
request a free lab account. Go to the CS Department
home page, and select the link for the
Admin Intranet (left side of the page). Click on the Create Account
link (left side of the page) and fill in the required information.
- We will be using the Microsoft Visual C++ 2003 compiler to test your
this course. All the software you will need to complete this course is
installed on the Windows XP machines in the McB 118 lab. You may also
download MS Visual C++ 2003 from the CS Department
software repository; the site license
permits you to install and use it as long as you are taking a computer
A newer version, MS Visual C++ 2005 is also available from our
software repository, but it uses a somewhat
different interface and a very different organization for projects.
There may also be compatibility issues with the compiler itself. My
advice is to use the older version for this course. There is also a
free Express edition of
Visual C++ 2005,
available from the Microsoft website. FWIW, my experience with that
version has not been promising and I do not recommend using it.
