The goals of this lab are to:
Git is a large piece of software, and there is a lot to learn with git. Fortunately, it is easy to get up and running on git with just a small number of commands.
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:CS35-s17/lab00-<user>.gitwhere <user> is your username.
This might seem like a lengthy sequence of commands to remember, but don't worry! We'll go over this in lab next week, and the commands will be the same for each assignment during the semester.
$ clang++ -o greeting greeting.cppThen, execute your compiled program. You might see something like:
$ ./greeting I am a computer greeting program. What is your name? Joshua Hello Joshua, it is nice to meet you!
$ clang++ -o guess guess.cppA sample run of your program might look like:
$ ./guess Please guess a number between 1 and 10. 12 Please guess a number between 1 and 10. 0 Please guess a number between 1 and 10. -4 Please guess a number between 1 and 10. 6 You guessed: 6. That's the right number. Good job!You can assume the user will enter an integer, but don't the user enters an integer in the proper range.
$ git add greeting.cpp guess.cppThe git add step adds modified files to be part of the next commit to the github server.
$ git commit -m "completed lab0"The git commit step makes a record of the recently added changes. The -m "completed lab0" part is a descriptive message describing what are the primary changes in this commit. Making a commit allows you to review or undo changes easily in the future, if needed.
$ git pushThe git push command sends your committed changes to the github server. If you do not run git push before the submission deadline, the instructor will not see your changes, even if you have finished coding your solution in your local directory. If you make changes to files after your push and want to share these changes, repeat the add, commit, push loop again to update the github server. To recap, the git commit cycle is git add, git commit, git push. Don't forget to git push when you have completed an assignment. You can review the basic git commands on the github help pages. Eventually, you should get in the habit of using git status to see if everything has been published, but we will talk about this more throughout the semester.
Once you are satisfied with your code, hand it in via git. Remember to add, commit, push. You may commit and push as often as you like, and only the most recent push will be graded.
