  • Assignment Submission instructions.
  • Additional online resources:
Note that grade lookup software is mostly useful for verifying what grade you received; the "Weight" fields and "Total" score is not very informative and should be ignored.

Using Tlearn at home
Those who wish to use the Tlearn software at home or elsewhere have several options:
  • The Tlearn software is available for downloading for a variety of platforms; see the website for instructions on getting the program by ftp from
  • Windows users can download the executable tlearn.exe (but see link above for official download site).
  • Mac users can also bring a disk to the lab and copy the software (the whole Tlearn folder) from there.
  • You can also xhost from the instructional machines. See Tlearn help for general instructions.
Note that not all the relevant data files are available online; see the individual assignments for the relevant data files.

Soda labs
The later assignments in the course are designed to run on the UNIX platform, and in most cases they have been tailored to run on the machines in 275-277 Soda, which are Solaris X86 machines.

See here for scheduling information for these labs, and here for general information about EECS Instructional Labs. You may also wish to browse the EECS Instructional Support pages.
  • See our UNIX help page for information on some basic UNIX commands.
  • If you have ssh and x-windows at home (if you can run x-windows graphics remotely), you may be able to run the programs by remotely logging into one of the machines in rooms 275-277, like pulsar.cs or quasar.cs.
  • See our SSH help page for explicit instructions on how to transfer files from home to a remote Soda server.
  • See this document for help on running Java on the Soda machines. (Essentially, the path you must specify depends on what machine you're using.)
