ENEE 140: Introduction to Programming Concepts for Engineers gangqu@umd.edu © Gang Qu Spring 2010 Week 1 Set up your UNIX Programming Environment Lab 1: Monday January 25 1. The lab computers a. The GLUE laboratory has computers running GLUE UNIX operating systems. It is ok if you prefer to bring your own laptop and use it during the recitation (check below on how to access GLUE UNIX from PC/Laptop). However, you are recommended to learn how to use the lab computer just in case. b. If you are not sure whether you have a GLUE (now known as TerpConnect) account, check the “account information” at OIT webpage ( http://www.helpdesk.umd.edu/ ). Ask your UTF/GTA if you need help. c. Learn how to log in the computer in the lab using your GLUE account. d. Learn how to open a web browser on the lab computer and visit OIT webpage (http://www.helpdesk.umd.edu/) for account information, particularly how to set a secure password. 2. Browsing the class webpage at https://bb.eng.umd.edu a. Get familiar with the structure of the class web page i. Announcements: important ones will also be emailed to you ii. Lectures: updates on lecture notes and lab manual iii. Assignments: project, quiz and exam information iv. My grades: all scores (quiz, lab report, project, exam) b. Check at least twice a week and look for the announcements in particular. 3. Typing a. If you are not very good at typing, try to practice as much as you can. It will save you time on lab reports, projects, and quizzes. And you will benefit the rest of your life for being able to type at a reasonable speed. 4. Work on GLUE UNIX from PC/Laptop a. If you plan to work on any computer other than those in the lab, you need to make sure that the computer has the facility/client to connect to GLUE system. Download and install such software (there are plenty of them available for free). b. PuTTY: a free software that enables you to log in to your GLUE UNIX account from your PC or laptop using a ssh or telnet client. c. WinSCP: This is another free software that you should install on your PC/Laptop for secure file transfer between your GLUE UNIX account and your PC/Laptop. It is not required though.
