Exam MOED A
|The grades are available via GR++, and the exams were returned to the secretariat.|
|We intend to publish the final grades at the beginning of next week, but only for students who submit exercises 6+7 by the end of this week.|
The others will get LO HESHLIM until the exercises are submitted.

Grail - output dvi file
|If you have troubles creating the output dvi file, you should probably change the content of your PATH environment variable.|
The first value in the list of paths should be:
- /usr/local/bin (if you are working on stud1)
- /usr/local/teTeX/bin (if you are working on csd)
You can set the right value by executing the following shell command (assuming you are using cshell):
- setenv PATH /usr/local/bin:$PATH (on stud1)
- setenv PATH /usr/local/teTeX/bin:$PATH (on csd)

Exercise 7 and a lexicon
|Exercise 7 is on the web. The due date is the same as for exercise 6 (2/2), but it is strongly recommended to solve ex7 before ex6.|
The lexicon from the last lecture, which is also relevant for ex7, can be found here.
Note that the lexicon includes some small changes, following corrections proposed in class.
|Exercise 6 is on the web. The deadline for submission is 2/2/05.|
In this exercise you will be working with Grail. Consult the instructions in:
Note that Grail runs only on csd/stud1. If you don't have an account on csd
(which is probably the case if you are undergraduate) then work under directory
homedir in your stud1 account. The 20Mb you have there should be enough.
