Assembly Language: Class Project 1

CS 301 Lecture, Dr. Lawlor

From the syllabus:

PROJ: A sizable class project--one big program written in or relating to assembly.

Each project is 10% of your course grade, so it should have some pretty good stuff!
  Conversely, the total end-to-end time for the project is three weeks, so keep it manageable.  Here's the schedule:
   October 2009    
Su Mo Tu We Th Fr Sa
1 2 3
4 5 6 7 8 9 10
11 12 13 14 15 16 17
18 19 20 21 22 23 24 <- Describe your topic in-class
25 26 27 28 29 30 31 <- Turn in rough draft code

November 2009
Su Mo Tu We Th Fr Sa
1 2 3 4 5 6 7
8 9 10 11 12 13 14 <- Turn in final draft code
The project topic (see ideas below) should be easy to describe in two sentences.  You'll say those sentences in class, partly so that I hear them, and partly so that other people in class that are interested in the same thing have a chance to join your group.  Group work is optional, but not required for this project.

The rough draft code should work, but not necessarily do everything you want, or be polished or tuned.

The final code should be fully debugged, tuned, commented, and include a short README explaining what it is, and what its results mean.

Project Topic Ideas

Or, pick your own!  As long as it's assembly-related, it counts!  You're also welcome to begin with a homework problem from this class, some program you wrote earlier, or even some code you found on the net--but be sure to cite your sources, so I can grade you on what you've added, not what you started from.  Your code can run totally inside NetRun, or be a standalone executable, but it should run somewhere.
