The PFE Editor
You may use any text editor you wish for preparing the programming
projects in this course. However, your code must be properly
indented, and there must be no ASCII
characters in your code. These two requirements can most easily be
met by using a good programmer's text editor. There are many of them
available, and you may get a completely free copy of PFE
(Programmer's File Editor) from the [ Development
Tools ] page for CS-101. You'll find
instructions for installing it there too.
Java Development Kit
You will be doing programming assignments using the Java language
this term. The Java Development Kit (JDK), version 1.2.2 (also
called SDK 2) is current and is available in the computer labs
on campus. You may download a free copy of JDK 1.2.2 from the
Tools ] page for CS-101. You'll find instructions for
installing it there too.
Common Lisp Interpreter/Compiler
You will be doing programming projects using the Common LISP language
this term, and will need a compiler/interpreter for that language.
You can use the
clisp command from your forbin account.
Or you can install the same software on any PC that is available to
you. You can get the program from the [ Development Tools ] page for
this course. You'll find instructions for installing
it there too.
