Sample implementations of bwtsearch and bwtdecode are available and will be used as the baselines for performance measurement (instead of using gzip and grep). This will address the grep issue of overlapping matches. I have updated the assignment spec (mainly the performance requirement section) accordingly. I have also added an example on how to use valgrind to measure the runtime memory usage.
Please read / re-read the spec for the updates. Thank you.
The recording of the live lecture today will be available in Blackboard Collaborate shortly.
As mentioned in the live lecture, there are no lectures and online exercises next week (due to the UNSW flexibility week).
The online consultations are still on for next week. If you have questions regarding Assignment 2, or from any previous lectures or online exercises, feel free to join any of them.
Assignment 2 spec is available. It is due on Monday 27th July 9:00am AEST.
Please post any short / clarification questions in the Forums, or talk to us in the online consultations for detailed questions.
