Students working in EDF should in general be competent at using the following tools. Highly recommended:

  • Linux
    • The bash shell, including simple scripting
    • An editor (vim or emacs preferred, others OK if you really know how to use them)
    • Files, directories, devices
    • find, grep, sort, head, tail...
    • pipelines "|" and redirection "<" and ">" (and "|&", ">&" too!)
  • Basic programming
    • An editor (above)
    • make
    • C++
      • Building a project from multiple source files
      • Creating and maintaining a Makefile
      • gprof (profiler) and gdb (debugger)
    • Creating and maintaining function libraries
