This course uses Phoenixforge to collect homeworks, projects, and paper responses and to distribute the support code you will need to do the projects.
Phoenixforge is based on the Subversion version control system (SVN). There are SVN tutorials online, including here, and here and here. You can search for svn tutorial and svn introduction to find others. The canonical reference is the SVN book here, which includes HTML and PDF versions; you might want to review Chapter 1.

mkdir cs232 chmod 700 cs232 cd cs232The
chmod 700command ensures that only you have permission to access to your work. (You are responsible for taking steps to prevent others from copying your work.) Then, check out the code:
svn checkout https://phoenixforge.cs.uchicago.edu/svn/[insert your CNetID here]-cs232-aut-14You may be prompted to accept the TLS certificate for the Phoenixforge server. If you're paranoid (as you should be in this course!), check that the certificate fingerprint is equal to
