Question 14 (2000):

I have completed q2.occ and as far as I can make out, it works!!!

My class supervisor said we had to produce 2 chip diagrams to hand in as part of our assignment. Am I right in thinking they are:

Is there any particular program I should use to create the diagrams? I done them in Word, using the flowchart symbols, but it don't look that great.

Also, how do I print my source code from Origami on a public PC????

Answer 14:

Yes to your first question - you do have to submit these two diagrams as well as your code listing.

No to your second question - the quickest thing is simply to draw them neatly by hand on your listing (next to the occam code that implements each diagram).

Origami doesn't have a print command. The files it produces are, of course, plain text. So you could pick up q2.occ (say) in a Windows editor (e.g. PFE) and print from there. Or you can print the file directly from Unix.

To help with the latter, there are two commands (pt and pq) in the etc directory in the course area:


If you haven't already done so, make a bin directory in your home directory and copy the above files over to it:

  mkdir ~/bin
  cp /usr/local/work/co516/etc/p* ~/bin

Then, set this ~/bin directory to be the first item in your path environment variable. This can be done by editing the definition of that variable in the .cshrc file in your home directory (if you are using the C-shell) or the .bash_profile file in your home directory (if you are using bash). If your unix command prompt ends with %, then you are using C-shell - if it ends in $, you are using bash. The syntax of how to set these environment variables is different for the different shells - but you can work it out from how they are already defined.

Once the above has been done, to print a file (say q2.occ) to a printer (say myprinter), the command is:

  pt q2.occ myprinter

To inspect the print-queue on a printer (say myprinter), the command is:

  pq myprinter
