TODO/Possible New Pages
Items to spin off as standalone videos / tutorials
Editors - vim, emacs, pico, atom. Should be able to edit text files, save changes, make copies.
IDEs - eclipse, MS visual studio. Should be able to create a project, add source files, compile and run, debug.
Debugging - gdb. Should be able to compile with debug information, use gdb to find where seg fault occurs, set breakpoints and look at variable values, step line by line through code.
Unix tools - grep, sed, awk, find, makefiles, unix regular expressions, reading manual and manual organization, pipes, I/O redirection.
Basic C programming and data structures. 5 questions. Must pass with 3 and 2 halves for - passing CS 499 and Cs 685/695/699, getting higher than a C in CS 500, getting a C or higher in CS 202.
C programming, with one program from five different types:
- Simple program that requires a loop or nested loops.
- Program that scans through text a character at a time to do something.
- Linked list traversal.
- Binary tree traversal.
- Bit operations.
