Programming Environment

Tips for Python 3

  1. Why doesn't the keypad work as expected? It keeps sending an escape sequence.
    Ans: These confusing things happen when PuTTY is in "application keypad mode".  Please follow the following steps:
    1. Bring up PuTTY Configuration.
    2. In the left pane, select Terminal - Features.
    3. Put a check mark next to "Disable application keypad mode".
  2. In case your Python program crashes after you call curses.noecho(), then under the Unix shell you cannot see the characters you type, although the shell still executes your commands.  To enable echo under the shell, type "stty echo" (although you cannot see it) and press Enter.
  3. In the nano editor, you may press Ctrl-W (Where Is) to search a string, or press Ctrl-C to show the current position (row/column) of the cursor.

FAQ

  1. How could I connect to the STU.ipv6.club.tw server if I am not inside the campus?
  2. Q: Why can't I type Chinese characters in my editor?
    A: If you are using the "ee" editor, its support for Chinese is incomplete at this moment (until somebody fixs it up). Please try to use "nano" or "vim".

Code Writing

  1. Draw a flowchart or write a pseudo code to illustrate the basic idea
  2. Prepare a test case so that you will verify when your code is complete.
  3. Keyin your code and check it is correct or not.
  4. If the outcome differs from what you expect, ask yourself why.
