tuffix: Tuffy's Linux
Official Linux environment for CPSC 120, 121, and 131 at California State University, Fullerton. Our mascot is Tuffy the elephant.
The key goal of this effort is to have a unified programming environment for our introductory courses that is accessible, fosters collaboration, and enables students and instructors to share working code with one another.
The major components of Tuffix are
- Ubuntu 20.04
- clang compiler
- GNU g++9 C++ compiler
- Atom text editor
- gdb debugger and Atom's dgb-gdb frontend
Additional tools and libraries are also included to support rich programming assignments, and courses aside from 120-121-131.
