This wiki/SVN is the home of CMPT242.

The goal of this course is to teach you to how to write code and how to think about solving problems. This will be the place most of that happens. Rather than handing in assignments, you will be checking code into this subversion repository. You will also be encouraged to collaborate with each other to tackle problems larger than would be appropriate for any one student.

This repository is only available if one is connected inside the campus network. There is a more public-facing site for this course at and there's also a moodle instance (only available to Simon's Rock community members) at


For direct access to our subversion class repository please use -- This resource is only available from on-campus.

Welcome to Trac 0.11.2

Trac is a minimalistic approach to web-based management of software projects. Its goal is to simplify effective tracking and handling of software issues, enhancements and overall progress.

All aspects of Trac have been designed with the single goal to help developers write great software while staying out of the way and imposing as little as possible on a team's established process and culture.

As all Wiki pages, this page is editable, this means that you can modify the contents of this page simply by using your web-browser. Simply click on the "Edit this page" link at the bottom of the page. WikiFormatting will give you a detailed description of available Wiki formatting commands.

"trac-admin yourenvdir initenv" created a new Trac environment, containing a default set of wiki pages and some sample data. This newly created environment also contains documentation to help you get started with your project.

You can use trac-admin to configure Trac to better fit your project, especially in regard to components, versions and milestones.

TracGuide is a good place to start.
