CS 136: Elementary Algorithm Design and Data Abstraction, Winter 2019


This page contains links to resources that may be useful and/or interesting to CS 136 students. None of this is required reading, but much of it is recommended. We will add new links to this page as we discover them.


  • The Racket Reference. Particularly useful for those coming into CS 136 with little or no Racket/Scheme experience.


  • The C reference manual (from Dennis Ritchie's home page). Pretty technical, but a complete language definition.


  • An introduction to Unix that is general and brief enough for CS 136 students. We suggest the intro page (ignoring the stuff at the bottom that is specific to that university) and the first four tutorials. Our own course tutorials will also go over similar material. Please note that the link above does not give sufficient warning that the commands rm and rmdir are not reversible. They do not move files and folders to the Trash or Recycle Bin, but simply delete them, so that you can't get them back. Be careful.
