When pair programming has been used, a copy of the submitted files should be available to both members of the team. This tutorial explains how to send a copy of the files using Windows.

Sending a copy of files in Windows

You will use simple Windows commands to zip up your files electronically, and then e-mail them to your partner. Each time you work in a pair, follow this technique so that both members of the team have access to all of the code created. Start by moving to your cs108 directory and then use the zip command to create a zipped version of all of the files in the appropriate lab or homework directory. Do this by clicking mouse-right on the lab01 folder and choosing “Send To”-“Compressed (zipped) Folder”.

You will replace “lab01” with the appropriate name of the lab or homework you created as a team. This creates a zip file named lab01.zip in your cs108 directory which can now be added as an attachment in an e-mail to your partner.

When your partner receives the zip file, they should save the attachment in their cs108 directory, double-click on the file to unzip it and extract the files. This will result in a lab01 directory containing a copy of all of the team's files in the partner's cs108 directory.
