NOTE there are no homeworks being assigned in this class.
I will be listing in class a list of possible problems for you to do,
and the answer manual has been placed on reserve in the library.
In addition you can check out some problems and solutions on

- Note: the vmac assembler does not know how to handle
that contain the two character PC end of line (carriage return
followed by a newline) as opposed to just the unix single character
(a newline). This will show up as a ton of errors from vmac. You can see
this problem by just doing a more on your document, and you will see a
^M at the end of every line.
There is a
dos2unix which allows you to convert the PC end of
line to the UNIX end of line. To use the program type the command:
For information, do a man on
dos2unix -ascii old_filename new_filename
Make sure to back up your file before doing any conversion, so that you
don't lose your work.
- You can avoid this problem in the future by using ascii transfer mode
when using ftp (this automatically converts the end of lines for you).
- You will be using the
try command to submit your work for this
class. Documentation for the
try command can be found
