You should EMAIL me homeworks, alex at theparticle dot com. Start email subject with "CISC 7330X HW# "
HW# 1 (due by 2nd class;): Email me your name, prefered email address, IM account (if any), major, and year.
HW# 2 (due by 3rd class): Write an Internet page grabber program. Your program should work similarly to UNIX program ``wget'' (or ``curl'')... only much simpler. Read the description of `wget' online. You specify a URL at command line, and your program connects and downloads a web-page. Tip: Internet search engine is your friend. Submit the program source code. [hw2 hint (feel free to use any programming language; highly recommend Java). Another hint: if you're doing this on Ubuntu, and can't find documentation for functions via "man" command, run this: apt-get install manpages-dev, which will install the linux programmer's manual pages; you'll be able to do: man gethostbyname to get documentation for the function, etc.].
