Milestone 1 Code Evaluations

We will be carrying out code evaluations for Milestone 1 during the tutorials of this week. Kindly note the following. (1) At least one team member from every team is expected to show up in his/her scheduled tutorial with a laptop ready to run Milestone 1. (2) There is a tester code posted on the MET website. You should COPY AND PASTE the code inside this main method into the main method of your kernel.c file without changing anything else. You will not be allowed to run any other main method during your code evaluation. There is a script file compile.sh posted on the MET website too to make compiling easier for you. (3) You will know your code grade during your evaluation. This grade is FINAL and is not subject to any future modifications. (4) Failure to show up for the evaluation, or to follow any of the above guidelines will result in receiving a final zero in Milestone 1. Good luck :)
