Configuring your BGUnix account
If you are using bgunix for computer science coursework, there are two commands you must use to configure your account for that class. These commands are described below.
Typing the command
will set up the compiler flags as needed for computer science classes. This need be done only once for your bgunix account.
Type the command
class -join directoryname
using the directory name specified by your instructor. This will establish a class directory for use in a particular computer science class. Your class directory will be ready after you enter this command. All of your work for the class should be done within the class directory that is created by executing this command. If you already have a subdirectory with this name in your home directory, you need to rename it to something else before attempting this command. This command will need to be executed for each class that uses bgunix. Your instructor will be able to view the files contained in the class directory for this account.
