Great Lessons from CM Hui

I've learnt much about gcc/g++ from CM Hui, a great admin in CS Lab. These includes the debugging technique like the use of nm - an utility for displaying the names in an object file (type "man nm" in your *nix console if you don't know what it is); the linking process and the makefile. This makes me much easiler to trace for the cause of the "undefined reference to XXX" problem.

Now I know how to add and modify and library in C/C++. Yeah!

I believe that as a CS student, there are some basic knowledge that should be known in Year 1. But... sigh... feel shame on myself for not knowing these... =__=
