Assignment 2 has now been released. The main topic is problem solving with graph data structures and graph search. Since the assignment gives you a lot of freedom to develop your own approach to the problem, readability of your program will be very important. Please make sure to adhere to the principles of structured programming and use good commenting.
Pay heed also to the following advice from the Tao of Programming (Book 3):
Thus spake the Master Programmer:
"When a program is being tested, it is too late to make design changes."
The marks for assignment 1 have now been finalised. In some cases the auto-testing results have been further adjusted manually. You can check your final result on WebCMS3 or by using the following command:
9024 classrun -sturec
You can also fetch your marked assignment with some feedback from WebCMS3 or by using

A reminder about the weekly help lab starting tomorrow (Tuesday). If you are having difficulties with any of the programming homework, please come to CSE Clavier Lab anytime between 2 and 4pm to use the lab computers for solving the exercises. A tutor, Shanush, will be around who will answer any questions you might have about them or the programs from the lecture.
