support these conﬁgurations. Introduction / 3 To submit ﬁles to the Grade Grinder using the Submit application, your computer must have access to the Internet. If you are
using a computer at a college or university, the computer is probably connected to the campus network and thus to the Internet. If
you are using a computer at home, you will have to connect ﬁrst to
your Internet Service Provider (ISP). The rule of thumb is that if
your browser can access the World Wide Web, then Submit should
be able to ﬁnd the Grade Grinder. 1.2 Installing the applications The LPL software can be run directly oﬀ of the cd-rom included
in the package. However, if you are working on your own computer, you should install the software on your computer’s hard
disk, because it will run faster. The cd-rom contains instructions
explaining how to do this in the Read Me ﬁle.
Whether you run the applications directly from the cd-rom
or from your hard disk, you will need to save your homework ﬁles
on a writable disk (such as a hard disk or USB stick), since your
computer will not be able to write to the cd-rom. If you are
working on a public computer, you should be careful not to leave
your homework ﬁles on the computer once you are ﬁnished, since
the ﬁles may be erased or copied by another user. 1.3 Getting Help If you encounter problems with the software, you should consult
the help pages on the LPL web site. The address of this web site
The web site also contains the latest information about the software, and downloadable updates for registered users. You can also
visit the application-speciﬁc help pages by clicking on the help icon
in the applications. This is a small question mark found in the top
right corner of each of the applications main screen.
If you discover a bug in the software, ﬁrst consult the web
site above for any information that we might have about the issue. In particular you should consult the list of Frequently Asked 4 / LPL Software Manual Questions (FAQ) at the web site to see if we have advice on ﬁxing your problem. If you don’t ﬁnd the information that you
need, you can contact us either by ﬁling a bug report, or sending a more general comment from the web site, or by email to

Submit is a computer program that allows you to submit your
homework exercises over the Internet to the Grade Grinder, a grading server that checks your homework and returns reports to you
and, if you ask, your instructor. In this chapter we describe how
to use Submit. 2.1 Getting started The computer you use to submit homework to the Grade Grinder
must be connected to the Internet. Submit uses the same form
of communication used by web browsers, so if you can access the
Internet with your web browser, you should be able to submit ﬁles
to the Grade Grinder.
