Tortoise in 5 - Linked List

This page will serve as a hub for all OOP344 students to create wiki pages related to the course for the purpose of aiding their fellow students. Got a handy trick that makes programming easier? Feel free to build a page about it and link it here for all your classmates to use!


To add a new page, simply put a link at the top of the page and a section below with a link and short description of what the page is about. Simple enough?

This page is dedicated to those poor souls that have to use SVN but don't have time to read through chapter upon chapter about it just to be able to participate in assignment 2.

Create an IRC account and login (in Windows)

4. If someone has taken your registered nick or you're trying to log on with your nick but it says "already in use" then try this to:

RECOVER Kill another user who has taken your nick
goto: Eg. the main chat room such as "" not the channels and type the
Syntax : /msg NickServ RECOVER [nick] [personal password]
/* leave out the brackets [ ] */ (NOTE: Please use the Ghost command instead for now)

GHOST Kills the nickname
goto: Eg. the main chat room such as "" not the channels and type the
Syntax : /msg NickServ GHOST [nick] [personal password]
/* leave out the brackets [ ] /msg NickServ ghost nickname password However, not sure if it's case sensative.*/
