Other Project Resources
A list of other resources that you might find helpful:
- C++ and UNIX:
- Thomas Anderson's Quick Introduction to C++ may be useful if you know C but are not familiar with all of the C++ subset we use in the programming projects.
- A more thorough guide to using the version of Gnu C++ installed on our Linux machines is here.
- Quick guide to UNIX development tools (one of the many useful documents available in Nick Parlante's ever-growing CS library)
- Help with the gdb debugger:
- GNU's online gdb users guide
- Printable quick reference: gdbref.ps
- A GDB article that Julie Zelenski wrote a few years ago for a programming journal: GDB breakpoint tricks
- References on lex & yacc:
Lexis the original lexical scanner developed by Lesk and Schmidt; Paxson's improved version is
yaccis Johnson and Sethi's original parser;
bisonis the GNU-equivalent written by Corbett and Stallman. Both are designed to be upward-compatible with the original while adding extensions and improvements.
- Original documentation by the authors of the tools themselves. These papers are quite readable and serve as an excellent introduction for familiarizing yourself with the tools.
- Man pages are available from command line, e.g.,
man lex. We've also put up browsable versions of the Solaris man pages for lex, flex, yacc, and bison.
- GNU's online documentation (full manuals, long, but very complete)
- The lex & yacc page from Combo.org.
- An article from the Linux Journal singing the praises of lex & yacc.
- References on JLex and Java_cup:
- References on MIPS & SPIM:
