cvs import public_html foster start
should work save your public_html directory into your cvs directory. Move your public_html directory somewhere safe:
mv public_html public_html_safe
and the check out a new version of your public html directory from cvs.
cvs co public_html
This should create a new public_html directory that works just like the old one. The only difference is that now you can back up by doing a "cvs ci". Running "cvs log index.html" should now say that you have created the file. Any time you edit index.html and save it in cvs, you will add to this log file.
2. Write a Perl script to repeatedly throw 5 dice until all 5 dice show the same number. Have the program count the number of iterations until this event occurs. Embed this code in a for loop so that the simulation is repeated 1000 times. Have your program report the empirical probability of rolling 5 dice and obtaining the same number on all 5.
3. Modify your subroutine that rolls the dice, so that it can be used to draw a simple random sample with replacement of 4 colors from 6 colors (label the colors R (red), Y (yellow), G (green), P (purple), L (lemon) and S (silver). In essence your subroutine should accept 2 pieces of information; the set of objects that constitute the population and the number of objects to be drawn, and return the simple random sample.
4 (easy version) Write (by hand) a web page to display the outcome of 3 sets of rolls of your dice. It should be in a tabular format, something like
<TABLE> <TR> <TD> R <TD> Y <TD> G <TD> P </TR></TABLE>Make your page accessible over the WEB. See if you can get it to display different colors. Look at your page under two or three different browsers (say Opera, Netscape, or lynx). Write a few sentences describing how the different browsers display the same information.
