Hardware and Software
Part of the workshop will include hands-on laboratories involving the C++
programming language. To the extent possible, the hope is to tailor this

high school. While it is anticipated that both PC-compatibles and
Macintoshes will be available, the following questions will help guide the
selection of hardware and software for this workshop.
What computing equipment normally is available for you and for
computer science students at your high school? (Fill in the appropriate

Which operating system do you usually use
(e.g., DOS, Windows, other -- specify release number)?
Are the high school machines networked (yes/no)?
If so, what networking software is used?
Do you currently run C++ on the equipment at your high school (yes/no)?
If so, which compiler (name and release number)?
