Extra Credit Assignment: Environment Setup
UC Irvine - Fall ‘22 - ICS 45C
This assignment is worth 1% extra credit on your final grade, it’s not a part of the project/homework grading. The goal is to make sure you have your development environment setup before we start project 1.
This assignment is due at 10PM PT on Friday of week 2 (2022-10-07). The project extra days cannot be used in this assignment. You’ll still have the 15 minute buffer for any technical issues.
Before you start
- Setup VS Code;
- Install a compiler;
- Setup code formatting.
All relevant links are available in the main course page. If you have any issues, please reach out on EdStem or during office hours.
What you have to do
Download this file: p0-starter.cpp
Although very poorly written and formatted, this file can be compiled and executed. So the first thing you have to do is make sure you can do that.
Part 1: g++
Step 1: Open a terminal.
Step 2: Navigate to the directory you downloaded the file.
Please note that’s the directory in my computer, yours might be different!
Step 3: Compile it…
g++ p0-starter.cpp -std=c++11 -Wall -Wextra -Wpedantic -Werror -o p0-starter
Step 4: Run it!
Step 5: Check the output of that code.
It should tell you something! Once you’ve seen the output, complete this assignment: https://canvas.eee.uci.edu/courses/48712/quizzes/244228/
Part 2: style
Now that we know we can compile and run code, let’s try formatting it.
p0-starter.cpp in VS Code and follow the instructions from the “Setup code formatting” slides.
Once you have a nicely formatted code, submit the file to P0 on gradescope: https://www.gradescope.com/courses/443728/assignments/2289176/
SummaryTo get extra credit, you should have submitted:
- the answer on Canvas;
- a nicely formatted file on Gradescope.
Both (1) and (2) should be autograded, so once you have completed them correctly, you're all done and have successfully installed all essentials we'll need!
