  2. g++ (GNU C++)
  3. Sun Java 1.4.2
  4. Sun Java

C/C++ use mostly standard PC^2 language definitions. Because of the need to change PATH and CLASSPATH for Java, the three Java choices have wrapper scipts. Here is the source code for the script javaexec:

# $1 is the java verson
# $2 is mainfile (full name)

/usr/local/bin/setupJava -jdk ${1}
javac ${2}

LSU Errata

If during the contest, you get a popup error complaining about an application by the name of eggcups, just hit "restart application" and ignore the error.

We installed a standard Eclipse release instead of the Fedora specific version. Recent changes in Eclipse require use of some libraries not in Fedora Core 5. So, you can not print directly from Eclipse. Please open your file in another editor to print.
