Assignment 2 Discussion

Domain clarification: What exactly is meant by domain in this assignment? It seems that the domain of “http://www.bmb.colostate.edu” is exactly that.

However, in the cases of “http://www.cs.colostate.edu/cstop/index.html” and “http://www.colostate.edu/Depts/Psychology/” I'm guessing the domains are respectively supposed to be “http://www.cs.colostate.edu/cstop/” and “http://www.colostate.edu/Depts/Psychology/”.

Is this correct or for “http://www.cs.colostate.edu/cstop/index.html” are we expected to use “http://www.cs.colostate.edu/”?

Thanks.

Answer: Use “http://www.cs.colostate.edu/” for CS domain and “http://www.colostate.edu/Depts/Psychology/” for the Psychology department.


Hello, I'm not sure if this is where I should post this question but I had some issues I was running into with https pages throwing a security exception, are we even supposed to be parsing https links? — Peter Christopher Ninnemann 2015/03/05 01:41

Answer: You can skip HTTPS domains.


May we discard links with spaces in them since the supplied code to resolve absolute paths cannot handle spaces?

Answer: Just trim the url string to remove any trailing or leading whitespaces. But you don't have to handle any other special characters.Thilina Buddhika 2015/03/07 14:11


Is there a tool we can use to debug on multiple threads? If wireshark or something like that we aren't allowed to use in implementation/turn-in will do this, is it fair game for us to use it while debugging as long as we take it out before submission?

Answer: Yes, you can use any tool that will help you with debugging. Usually it is tricky to use an IDE in a multi-threaded set up as it binds with a single thread.
