Court order to block access from Project Gutenberg in Germany
As of 3rd March 2018 access to Project Gutenberg is blocked from Germany due to a court order, see the official statement from PGLAF (the organisation hosting Project Gutenberg) for details. This implies as a user with a German IP address you will be unable to use the download script mentioned below. Unfortunately many of the exercises depend on the books from Project Gutenberg and whilst it is possible to do them without the proper book files, the results might deviate. I am currently unaware of a good alternative to obtain the Project Gutenberg books in a simple way and I am unsure about the legal status regards hosting them myself. In the lack of time on my side the excercises will stay broken for now, which I very much regret.
Before being able to do the Project Gutenberg-related exercises, you should
run the script
resources/gutenberg/download.sh from the
resources/gutenberg/ directory, i.e.
cd resources/gutenberg ./download.sh
If you want a more fancy
.bashrc configuration, e.g. a coloured
output of grep or a colored command prompt, run the
script from the files_for_home/ directory.
cd files_for_home ./install.sh
Note that this will replace your current
.bashrc and your
.profile in case these files exist.
The solutions to the exercises as well as some further information about the course can be found on the course website.
