Instructions for Submitting Assignments
  • Each student is given an svn directory that needs to be checked out at the beginning of the semester to as follows:
    mkdir <working_directory>
    svn co https://subversion.ews.illinois.edu/svn/sp18-cs477/<your_netid> <working_directory>
  • After the initial checkout, <working_directory> will contain a subdirectory assignments. Once an assignment (mp or hw) has been announced, if you do an
    svn up
    you will add a directory named after the assignment (e.g. mp1) in the mps directory. That directory will contain instructions for the assignment, plus a stub for each file you must turn in.
  • To do an assignment, you will need to follow the instructions given in the directory for that assignment. There will be two kinds of assignments, mps and hws. Mps will be exercises carried out on tools supporting a specific type of formal methods. Hws will be written assignments proving theorems and doing hand calculations. Since the mps involve using various tools, by default you will need to do them on the ews linux machines. Most of the tools should also be avialable form the web to download to you own machine should you choose to work on your own machine.
  • To submit an assignment, once you have completed the necessry files as decribed in the assignment instructions, in the assignment directory or either of the parent directory or the gradparent directory
    svn commit -m "<your comment here>"
    You may restrict svn commit to a specific collection of files and directories by adding a list to the end of the command.
  • You may do multiple commits; the version that is in the repositry at 9:00pm on the due date is that one that will be collected and graded.
