Comp 152 Project 1
Due: Sat 2/4 at 11:59pm
In this project you'll have the opportunity to refresh your comp101
experience and get used to the computing environment that you will use
for this class.
This project, and all projects in this class, will use csdev01 as the
reference platform. If it works on csdev01, then it works for grading,
if it does not, then it does not work for grading.
See My csdev01 introduction page if you've not used the system before.
To compile a java program at the command line on csdev01 use these commands.
to compile a java file called project1.java which is in the current folder use
if that file has a main method in it, you can run the program by typing
at the command line after a sucessful compile.
In this project you will build a small program that will query the user
for input, store that input into an ArrayList and finally print out
statistics on that data.
Your program needs to ask the
user for a file name. The file will contain a name on each line. Put
each of the names into an ArrayList.
After you have put all of the names into the ArrayList search through the list and print out the following information;
You can find a sample list of names on the linux server at
- Print out the longest name
- Print out the shortest name
- print out the total number of characters in all of the names.
- print out the average number of characters per name
- print out the whole list after the previous four pieces of information.
You also need to have a readme.txt file in your folder which contains
when you have completed the program and the readme, zip up the whole
folder and submit it. (I recommend using konqueror to compress the
folder. right click on the folder, choose the compress submenu, from
there choose one of the compress as options. Submit the
- your name
- a brief (one paragraph) description of how you implemented the project
- anything that is left undone in the project.
from the command line on csdev01, use the following line to move into
then use this line to run the submit program:
This will pop up a window allowing you to choose your class (and
possibly section) and the file to submit. When you have done so press
submit and in a few seconds (longer if you submit a really large file)
you will see a dialog pop up telling you your submission was sucessful.
