Homework 4: CS114 Unix Tools, Fall 2007 Due electronically (via CMS) on Wednesday 31 October 2007, 11:59PM 1 Packages In this section, you will download and install a software package, and then run it. In general this process can be somewhat complicated, but here we will make it very simple. Download the .tar.gz source tarball of version 2.8.6 of the Lynx web browser. This file can be found at lynx2.8.6.tar.gz . You can either download this on your computer and transfer it to your directory on the CSUG linux machines, or download it directly on the CSUG machines (using, e.g. wget ). Extract the tarball into a subdirectory of your home directory, and cd into the directory you’ve just created. Instructions for using tar can be found in lecture 10. Execute ./configure --prefix=$HOME This will run for a bit and output a page or so of text. Execute make . This will build lynx , and so it will take a little while to run. Execute make install . This will copy the lynx program into the bin subdirectory of your home directory.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
