Lab 1: Instructor's Notes

If you wish to keep network traffic (and student lab time) to a minimum, consider the following steps:

  1. Create a local course directory containing a lab1 subdirectory, and copy hypot.cpp into this directory. (The compressed files make this a bit easier.)
  2. At the beginning of your lab session, review absolute and relative file names, and how to copy files from one directory to another.
  3. Inform your students of the absolute name of the file they need to copy for today's exercise (hypot.cpp).

There are several questions for the student to answer, and if the students spend some time dealing with the operating system or the compiler, you may want the students to just answer some of the questions.
