In addition to the prototypes, you should have one large comment that consists of two or three paragraphs explaining your design. This explanation should be sufficient so that one of the lecturers could draw a block diagram of function calls from it (like the one we did in class for project 1).
Since you are using more complex data structures in your projects, this design document should also give a brief description of the data structures you plan to use and what they will store. You should also have any structure definitions and typedefs as part of this file.
This design document MUST be called design5.txt
Your design5.txt file will be compared to the header file or files that you submit when project 5 is due. Minor changes to the design are allowed. A minor change might be the addition of another parameter to a function's parameter list, or the addition of another function or two. However, many such changes will, collectively, be considered major.
If there were major changes between the design document and the header files that are part of the final project, you will lose as many as 5 points. This would indicate that you didn't give sufficient thought to your design before beginning the implementation.
submit cs201 Proj5 design5.txt
To verify that your project was submitted, you can execute the following command at the Unix prompt. It will show all files that you submitted in a format similar to the Unix 'ls' command.
submitls cs201 Proj5
