COMP112 2020 Tri 1: Demos

Why the demos don't work at home

If we made the demo programs available for running at home (which would be quite desirable all round), we would have to provide at least the compiled code. The problem is that it is very easy to find tools that will "uncompile" the code back into java code, which would give all the answers away. Since this would destroy the whole point of the assignments (for you to learn by writing the programs yourself), we hide the demos behind a security wall, which means they can only be run on the school workstations.
