For all sorts of questions/clarifications about subject matter, assignment,
etc., use the newsgroup. You are responsible for
checking the newsgroup and website regularly.
When -- and only when -- the newsgroup server is down, check the
Blackboard site for announcements and discussions.
Reading assignments are very important, please read before you come
We will use Lisp for all programming assignments. Allegro Common Lisp is
installed on all machines in the undergraduate lab on the ground floor of
the CS Department. Franz (the makers of ACL) have a free download trial version,
the URL is below. Other Common Lisps will also work. Scheme will not work,
because it won't run the class software.
