The purpose of this assignment is to download the source code for a project, in this case 4th, and build it on ANY SERVER. 4th is an implementation of the programming language “forth”. You do not need to know anything about “forth” to complete this assignment.
In addition to building the “4th” system, you will be asked to record certain events below. You will save the recorded information in an ASCII file named “4th_log.txt”. The file, “4th_log.txt”, must be located in the following directory: $HOME/itec400/homework
Create the following directory:
This directory will be used to hold the files needed to build 4th.
Downloaded the compressed “tar” file on cs.franklin.edu. The full path to the file is: /export/home/dandrear/public_html/itec400/Misc/4th-3.3d2-unix.tar.gz
Copy the “tar” file into your “4th” directory.
Unpack the “tar” file using the ‘tar’ command. Remember, this file is also compressed, so unpack the file as follows:
Uncompress the file using gunzip:
Unpack the tar file
You should now see a new directory named “4th-3.3d2”.
Record in “4th_log.txt” the prerequisites for the target ‘4th’.
use the “make” command to build the product.
If everything worked okay, “make” should have created an executable file called “4th”.
Record in “4th_log.txt” the size of the executable named “4th”, in bytes.
Copy the “4th” executable to the following directory: $HOME/itec400/homework/4th/4th-3.3d2
You should now be prompted to enter a “Screen file name”
At the “Screen file name” prompt, type: examples/romans.4th
At the 4th prompt, type: r
Another fun script is “keirsey.4th”. This script will ask you a series of questions and determine your personality type based on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. To run this script do the following:
The script will ask you a lot of questions about your personality and finally, it will identify your personality type.
