|The goal of this assignment is to assess your understanding of the use of the shell and open-source tools to effectively filter and process textfiles and streams of text. You will be assessed on the clarity and quality of your shellscripts to examine and report on the data. While the efficiency of your shellscript will not be assessed, you should take care to avoid any excessive slow practices.|
Your shellscript should also detect and report the problem of any of the files having different versions numbers to any others.
Finally, add a new target to the project's Makefile to update the version number in the C source files and in the Makefile, itself. Be very careful with this last part (i.e. while testing, keep a backup copy of your Makefile in case you 'destroy' it).
To calculate the distance, in metres, between a pair of latitude/longitude
you'll need to employ the
You may wish to perform the calculation by invoking a single program or, if using AWK, by calling an AWK function. Here's the code for each:
Good luck. Chris McDonald
