CSE 109 HW 1 Due 9 PM in the evening before the next class after the class in which I ANNOUNCE THE HW HAS BEEN ASSIGNED. Login to your cse109 account and do the following: 1. In the root directory of your account copy the file /proj/csc109/files/dotEmacs into the file .emacs 2. Create a subdirectory cse109.081 of your root directory. 3.

    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.
