Exercises will be posted here and in blackboard. The answers _must_ be submitted via blackboard. When submitting your answer, include all the source files in a zip, and upload that through blackboard's exercise completion functionality. Note that the solution you submit must consist solely of the source files that are executable independently.

I recommend getting used to the command prompt of your chosen language as it includes functionalities commonly available in text-based user environments (for example, browsing command history with up- and down arrows). Note that you can use the command prompt also for showing function documentation with command help (e.g. 'help fprintf' in Matlab, '? print' in R), and for finding function names with lookfor (e.g. 'lookfor print' in Matlab, '?? print' in R).
