Getting Started

This documentation is example-oriented. Read through this Introduction and the Simple Examples to get started; read through the Tips once you have played with the GB functions.

Here are the two keys to using GB:

  • First time only, in Splus you must enter
  • source("/afs/")
    in order to compile the GB functions into your .Data.hp directory


    If you don't have access to the SPH network, the two files are here: GdBk.S GdBkUtil.S


    The grades are stored in a Splus data frame with extra attributes. You don't directly access this data frame; it's stored on Andrew, hence the need to klog.

    If there's one other key to GB it's that until you see a message like

    Wrote 'GB.202.A' to '/afs/'.
    you can hit Control-C to abort and no changes will be saved. the top
