Random software

A library to read, print and write ELF files, and some code using it.

A set of tools to study gzip/DEFLATE compression.

Phelma software

1st year Structured Programming


This is a lightweight overlay to the SDL library required for some practical works.

To install it on your debian/Ubuntu system:

  1. Make sure you have added the relevant repository to your system, as explained above;
  2. Install the package from your terminal:
sudo apt install libsdl2-phelma

You may need to update the Makefile of the practical works accordingly. More on this later if needed.

2nd year MIPS toolchain

You shouldn’t need this. However, just in case:

chmod +x

Please ensure you have:

  1. enough broadband (~180MiB must be downloaded);
  2. a few GiB of free disk space (will be only temporarily needed);
  3. roughly one hour of free time.
