If you omit 'SCRIPT.html' in the address bar, you should see a listing
of today's files.
Open a terminal (start 'bash' if necessary).
To make your initial copy of the lab files, copy-and-paste these commands:
cp /home/cs153001/share/lab4/* .
You should see a listing of your lab files.
File cons.py is the main program for you to
edit. File rosalind_cons.txt is a
sample input, which you are welcome to overwrite when you download a
larger test input from Rosalind.
Edit your copy of cons.py, and look for "TODO" items.
When you think you are done with cons.py, you should try to solve
the problem on Rosalind. When Rosalind gives you a test input to
download, just overwrite your copy of rosalind_cons.txt.
REMARK: when solving problems for CS153 on Rosalind, make sure
you see ?class=435 at end of the address bar. That means you
are solving the problem in the context of our class, not just as an
Finally, be sure to leave a copy of your working program in your lab4
directory. That is, I will look for
your ~/cs153/lab4/cons.py file. This should be automatic if
you finish this in the CS lab, but it may require an extra step if you
do your Rosalind submission from outside the lab (like from a laptop).
Let me know if you need advice on copying files into the CS lab.
