CSE1020 Guided Tour Part 4: Using submit

The submit command is used by many CSE courses to electronically submit assignments and tests. Your submission files must be located somewhere on the CSE filesystem (usually in a directory in your home directory).

Your professor wants you to submit your entire lab01 directory.

You could cut-and-pase the following command into a terminal to submit this lab:

submit 1020 L01 ~/Documents/cse1020/lab01

Using the full pathname of your files means that the current working directory of your shell does not matter.


Alternatively, you could change the working directory to your cse1020 directory and then use:

submit 1020 L01 lab01


You can submit as many times as you want; if you submit a newer version of a file, that file will be the one that is kept (i.e., newer submissions will overwrite existing ones that have the same name).
