Written and Programming
- (Mon Nov 29) Programming assignment P6 due Tue Dec 7.
Details of the assignment are
here. This assignment
requires an individualized effort; collaboration is not permitted.
A skeleton VJ++ project
for this assignment can be found
in a zip file.
(This file must be downloaded and unzipped into a new folder;
VJ++ can be started from GuessGame.vjp in that folder.
More details in the assignment).
- previous assignments
(some material restricted to UNC access)
- A high quality (but large)
tutorial for the Java language
from the original developers of the language at Sun.
- Haskore is a music composition and performance system written in
Haskell by Paul Hudak at Yale University. There is an
online tutorial for Haskore. A copy of this tutorial is included
in your Haskell distribution and can be accessed on your own machine
- The Haskell language reference page,
to the language and the longer and rather technical
- The reference page for the
of the Haskell language.
- Home page for the
Haskell textbook used in this course.
Software components for the course to execute on a PC running
Windows 95/98/NT can be downloaded from
Alternatively, you may check out overnight a zip disk with all the
necessary files (see instructor).
The components consist of:
Before downloading any of the components, read the
- Hugs, a system to execute Haskell programs
- Gnu emacs, a text editor that may be used to
prepare programs for execution by hugs
Full documentation for the hugs implementation of Haskell
and the extra libraries for creating graphics and music (Haskore)
can be found
Much of this documentation is also included in the docs
directory of the hugs distribution, where it can be read without
the need for internet access.
