Subject, Course and Code : Computer Methods 1 : ENEL2CAH1 page 5 of 7 Section B Question 21 Write a bash script called SimonSays.sh. The script takes one positional parameter and does the following: 1. If the parameter is "Hello" then echo "Hello Simon!" 2. If the parameter is "Bye" then echo "Bye bye Simon." 3. For all other parameter values, echo "That makes no sense Simon!" Use a case-statement to implement the above. Question 22 [10 Marks] [10 Marks] Paper: 1

Write a C application that returns the dot product of two arrays. The main program defines the arrays. It then calls a function that returns the dot product. This code is provided below. The function must be prototyped as follows: float DotFunc( int*, int*, int); The function has three parameters: Parameter 1 is a pointer to the first element in an array of floats (vector) Parameter 2 is similar to parameter 1 but refers to the second array (vector) Parameter 3 is the number of elements in each array (both have the same size) The function returns a float that contains the dot product of the arrays.
#include<stdio.h> float DotFunc( int*, int*, int); #define SIZE 3 int main(void) { float x[SIZE]={1.0,2.3,3.2}; float y[SIZE]={4.1,5.0,6.5}; printf("\n The dot product of x and y is %f\n\n", DotFunc(x, y, SIZE)); return 0; }

/*Missing function goes here*/

Question 23

Question 24

[30 marks]

Write a program that reads a C source file from the standard input and then searches the text for ANSI-C formatted comments and prints them to the standard output. Only comments are printed The program starts printing each new comment on a new line Comments that span several lines are also printed Example of program output follows: Assume that your program is called comment.c and it is complied to an executable called comment. Also assume that the C source file FirstProg.c contains the following text...
/* This is my first C program and this is my first header comment. It spans 3 lines!*/ #include<stdio.h> /* main function is now defined*/ int main(void) { printf("Hello World!"); /*this is an in-line comment*/ return 0; }

With both files in the current directory, we run the application as follows linux-prompt> more FirstProg.c | ./comment The following output is produced.
/* This is my first C program and this is my first header comment. It spans 3 lines!*/ /* main function is now defined*/ /*this is an in-line comment*/

Your program must behave in the same manner as described in the example above.
