ECE 4122/6122 Lab 0: Getting PACE-ICE Access and Using
the g++ Compiler
(100 pts)
Category: Getting Started
Problem 1:
This problem is very simple. Write a C++ program using the insertion stream operator and
escape sequences that outputs the following text to your terminal screen when executed:
My name is: (your first and last name separated by a space)
This (“) is a double quote.
This (‘) is a single quote.
This (\) is a backslash.
This (/) is a forward slash.
This program is very simple with no user input, command arguments, or file output. You can
place all the code in your main() function in a file called Lab0_Problem1.cpp.
Your PACE-ICE accounts have already been created.
If you are trying to logon off campus, you will need to setup a VPN. Instructions are on the OIT
website at Georgia Tech.
Problem 2: One more One
( Consider the following process that can be applied recursively to any
positive integer n:
• if n=1, do nothing and the process stops,
• if n is divisible by 7, divide it by 7,
• otherwise add 1.
The write a console program that continuously takes in a number n from the console and outputs to
the console the number of 1’s that must be added to the positive integer n before the process
above ends.
Entering a 0 ends the program.
Make sure code check for valid input values.
Place your code in the file Lab0_Problem2.cpp.
Sample Sequence:
�� 126
�� 18
�� 19
�� 20
�� 21
�� 3
�� 4
�� 5
�� 6
�� 7
�� 1
Example Program Input\Output:
Please enter the starting number n: 125
The sequence had 8 instances of the number 1 being added.
Please enter the starting number n: -1
Invalid input!! Please try again.
Please enter the starting number n:
Turn-In Instructions
Place your two cpp files in a zip file called and upload this zip file on the assignment
section of Canvas.
Grading Rubric:
If a student’s program runs correctly and produces the desired output, the student has the potential
to get a 100 on his or her homework; however, TA’s will look through your code for other
elements needed to meet the lab requirements. The table below shows typical deductions that could
Element Percentage
Does Not Compile 40% Code does not compile on PACE-ICE!
Does Not Match Output 10%-90% The code compiles but does not produce correct outputs.
Clear Self-Documenting
Coding Styles
10%-25% This can include incorrect indentation, using unclear variable names,
unclear/missing comments, or compiling with warnings. (See
Appendix A)
Element Percentage Deduction Details
Late Deduction Function score – 0.5 * H H = number of hours (ceiling function) passed
Appendix A: Coding Standards
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)
k -= i;
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
“imaginary”). The more descriptive your variable and function names are, the more readable your code will
be. This is the idea behind self-documenting code.
File Headers:
Every file should have the following header at the top
Author: your name
Class: ECE4122 or ECE6122 (section)
Last Date Modified: date
What is the purpose of this file?
Code Comments:
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.
