Keyword reference for demos


Question 1 (2002):

Are these funny demos (shown in the first lecture) available somewhere?

Answer 1:

Some components from the RMoX demonstrator were taken from student answers to question 7 from the "occam Exercise Sheet". Executables can be run on raptor by changing to the answers directory:

  cd /usr/local/courses/co516/answers

and then executing one or more from:


The full RMoX demonstrator will be available shortly. You will have to make this as a PC boot floppy. Details later ...

Question 84 (2000):

Not really an anonymous question, more an anonymous suggestion!!

I downloaded the answers directory last night to run the example animations at home. Its only after I rebooted to Linux and tried to run it that I realised that the compiled versions are in SPARC format!! My solution - reboot to Windows telnet in, run the animations, make notes, reboot to Linux and do my assignment!

Would it be possible to put up Linux versions of the compiled code when you aren't providing the original source (in the case of assignments before the deadline)?

I know it won't help anyone in our year anymore, but it might help students in the future.

Answer 84:

The fun ones are there! Once you have built the KRoC/Linux release, look in:


and you will find Linux/PC executables q7-nick and q7-fred. What we didn't include, sadly, was a Linux/PC executable for the minimal solution - i.e. the equivalent to a7 on raptor. Yes, we will do that in future. Apologies.
