ECE 4122/6122 Hmk #3 (100 pts)
Problem 1: Lattice paths
(www.projecteuler.net) Write a console program that takes as a command line arguments the
height and width of a lattice.
Example for a lattice 20 high and 10 wide.
Problem1.exe –h 20 –w 10
Using the logic described below use multithreading to determine the number of possible paths
through the lattice as quickly as possible. You should output to the console the number of
paths exactly like the following (remember to add a line feed at the end of the ouput)
> Problem1.exe –h 2 –w 2
> Number of Routes: 6
>
Path rules:
Starting in the top left corner of the lattice, and only being able to move to the right and down,
determine the number of routes to the bottom right corner of the lattice.
Example:
There are exactly 6 routes to the bottom right corner of a 2 x 2 lattice.

Problem 2: Largest Product in a Grid
(www.projecteuler.net) Write a multithreaded console program using OpenMP that takes as a
command line argument the name of a data file. The data file will contain a M x N grid of
numbers. Your program must read in the data file and determine the largest product of four
adjacent numbers in the same direction (up, down, left, right, or diagonally). Below is an
example of 4 adjacent diagonal numbers in Red:
File format:
All values in the text data file are space delimited. You can assume that the input data file does
not contain errors, such as missing numbers or nonnumeric numbers and all numbers are
greater than or equal to 0. You are free to create as many files as you like and use whatever
filenames in order to create a solution. All the files *.cpp and *.h files you create should reside
in a single folder that can be compiled to create the executable.
The first line in the file will have the number of M rows and N columns. The next M lines in the
data file will contain the rows of N numbers.
Use the file data_Problem2.txt included in the assignment as a test input file.
Output:
Your program should create a text file called output2.txt, in the same directory as the
executable, with just the numerical answer on a single line.

Problem 3 (ECE 6122 students only): Maximum Path Sum
(www.projecteuler.net) By starting at the top of the triangle below and moving to adjacent
numbers on the row below, the maximum total from top to bottom is 23.
That is, 3 + 7 + 4 + 9 = 23.
Similar to Problem #2, write a multi-threaded console program using OpenMP that takes as a
command line argument the name of a data file. Your program must read in a triangle of
arbitrary size from a data file. The first line will contain the number of levels in the triangle. A
sample data file is attached (data_triangle.txt) to the homework assignment. Your program
must find the maximum sum path through the input triangle starting at the top of the triangle.
You can assume that the input data file does not contain errors, such as missing numbers or
nonnumeric numbers and all numbers are greater than or equal to 0.
Output:
Your program should create a text file called output3.txt, in the same directory as the
executable, with just the numerical answer on a single line.

Appendix A: Coding Standards
Indentation:
When using if/for/while statements, make sure you indent 4 spaces for the content inside those. Also
make sure that you use spaces to make the code more readable.
For example:
for (int i; i < 10; i++)
{
j = j + i;
}
If you have nested statements, you should use multiple indentions. Each { should be on its own line (like
the for loop) If you have else or else if statements after your if statement, they should be on their own
line.
for (int i; i < 10; i++)
{
if (i < 5)
{
counter++;
k -= i;
}
else
{
k +=1;
}
j += i;
}
Camel Case:
This naming convention has the first letter of the variable be lower case, and the first letter in each new
word be capitalized (e.g. firstSecondThird). This applies for functions and member functions as well! The
main exception to this is class names, where the first letter should also be capitalized.
Variable and Function Names:
Your variable and function names should be clear about what that variable or function is. Do not use one
letter variables, but use abbreviations when it is appropriate (for example: “imag” instead of
will be. This is the idea behind self-documenting code.
8
Every file should have the following header at the top
/*
Class: ECE4122 or ECE6122
Last Date Modified: <date>
Description:
What is the purpose of this file?
*/
1. Every function must have a comment section describing the purpose of the function, the input
and output parameters, the return value (if any).
2. Every class must have a comment section to describe the purpose of the class.
3. Comments need to be placed inside of functions/loops to assist in the understanding of the flow
of the code.

Appendix B: Accessing PACE-ICE Instructions
ACCESSING LINUX PACE-ICE CLUSTER (SERVER)
To access the PACE-ICE cluster you need certain software on your laptop or desktop system, as described
below.
Windows Users:
Option 0 (Using SecureCRT)- THIS IS THE EASIEST OPTION!
The Georgia Tech Office of Information Technology (OIT) maintains a web page of software that can be
http://software.oit.gatech.edu
From that page you will need to install SecureCRT.
then answer a series of questions regarding export controls.
Connecting using SecureCRT should be easy.
• Open SecureCRT, you’ll be presented with the “Quick Connect” screen.
• Choose protocol “ssh2”.
• Enter the name of the PACE machine you wish to connect to in the “HostName” box (i.e.
coc-ice.pace.gatech.edu)
• Click “Connect”.
• A new window will open, and you’ll be prompted for your password.
Option 1 (Using Ubuntu for Windows 10):
Option 1 uses the Ubuntu on Windows program. This can only be downloaded if you are running
Windows 10 or above. If using Windows 8 or below, use Options 2 or 3. It also requires the use of simple
bash commands.
1. Install Ubuntu for Windows 10 by following the guide from the following link:
https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/commandline/wsl/install-win10
2. Once Ubuntu for Windows 10 is installed, open it and type the following into the command line:
3. When it asks if you’re sure you want to connect, type in:
yes
10
any characters typing)
4. You’re now connected to PACE-ICE. You can edit files using vim by typing in:
vi filename.cc OR nano vilename.cpp
For a list of vim commands, use the following link:
5. You’re able to edit, compile, run, and submit your code from this command line.
Option 2 (Using PuTTY):
Option 2 uses a program called PuTTY to ssh into the PACE-ICE cluster. It is easier to set up, but doesn’t
allow you to access any local files from the command line. It also requires the use of simple bash
commands.
2. Once installed, open PuTTY and for the Host Name, type in:
coc-ice.pace.gatech.edu and
for the port, leave it as 22.
3. Click Open and a window will pop up asking if you trust the host. Click Yes and it will then ask
characters typing)
4. You’re now connected to PACE-ICE. You can edit files using vim by typing in: vim filename.cc
OR nano vilename.cpp
For a list of vim commands, use the following link:
5. You’re able to edit, compile, run, and submit your code from this command line.
MacOS Users:.
Option 0 (Using the Terminal to SSH into PACE-ICE):
11
This option uses the built-in terminal in MacOS to ssh into PACE-ICE and use a command line text editor
1. Open Terminal from the Launchpad or Spotlight Search.
2. Once you’re in the terminal, ssh into PACE-ICE by typing:
3. When it asks if you’re sure you want to connect, type in:
yes
