The UNIX Environment
Submitting: Put your answer into a file called Answers named as
indicated and submit them as described in the All About Homework
handout. Remember, we'll read it on the DECs, so be sure they work there!
(Note: if you use ther file names, we will deduct 5 points.)
- (10 points) How would you print the date and time in the form

Give the UNIX command to do this.
The C Programming Language
Submitting: Put your program into files named as indicated and submit
them as described in the All About Homework handout. Remember, we'll
compile and run them on the DECs, so be sure they work there! (Note:
if you use other file names, we will deduct 5 points.)
- (50 points) Write a program called choose that prints all
permutations of m numbers chosen from the set 1 ... n. Your
program is to take two arguments, the first of which is m and the second,
n. For example,
choose 2 3
(it may print these lines in any order). Put this into a file called
choose.c. Remember to look for invalid command line numbers! (Both
numbers must be positive, and m <= n.)
Hint: use recursion.
- (50 points) The function dyngets is like the function
fgets(3) except that it reads lines of arbitrary length, and returns a
pointer to dynamically allocated memory containing the current input line. It
is useful when the input line can be very, very long.
A copy of this function is available. Unfortunately, it does not work right.
Find, and fix, the error(s). Submit the corrected routine in a file called
To get this function, go to the directory ~cs40/hw5 in the CSIF. In
that directory are the files dynget.c (the buggy source code) and
dyngets.man (a manual page; it describes the arguments and the use of
the function). The manual page's description of the function is what the
debugged routine should conform to. Also present is a program testdg.c
that can be used to test your dyngets function; it too has a manual page
and source code in that directory/

RTF document, a
