    2. Implementation of the specified modification:30%
    3. Subject Viva:20%

5. All possible operations relating to files like open, close, read, retrieve, delete and update have to be implemented and demonstrated in all the mini projects

PART – I Edit

The following specifications are common to all projects.

Design a class called STUDENT. Each object of this class represents information about a single student. Members should be included for student USN (University Seat Number), Name, Address, Semester, Branch etc. Methods should be included for initialization, assignment and modifying values. Provide methods to write the member values to the output stream suitably formatted. Add methods to store objects as records in files and load objects from the file using buffering. Design a suitable IO BUFFER class hierarchy. Add pack and unpack methods to class STUDENT. For all the mini projects, assume variable–size fields with delimiters, in a fixed length record structure for the data file.

PART – II Edit

One of the following mini projects is to be completed by each batch of two students.

PROJECT – 1 Edit

Develop an indexed file for the student record file with the USN as the key and name as the secondary key. Write a driver program to create an index file from the student record file created in PART – 1. Prompt for USN and display of the record.

Modify the program so that if a secondary key value is entered by the user and if there are multiple matching records, then all the records are displayed.

  1. Select any other secondary key of your choice and demonstrate the retrieval using combinations of secondary keys.

2.Use inverted list structure to rearrange the secondary key index file when new insertion is to be done.

PROJECT – 2 Edit

Develop an application that produces student’s transcripts. Use Cosequential processes and Master Transaction Process to develop this. For each student record (Master) print the student information and list of all subjects (transactions) taken by the student. As input, use file of STUDENT records sorted by USN.

  1. Demonstrate 4-way merge.
  2. Sort the data file using heap-sort and demonstrate the 4 phases of merging using heap-sort.

PROJECT – 3 Edit

Add B – tree indexes to the data files created in PART – 1. Use Class BTREE to create B-tree index of the student record file with USN as key.

Write a driver program to create a B-tree file from an existing student record file. Demonstrate the retrieval information based on USN and print all objects that match it.

  1. Calculate and display the average space utilization.
  2. Invoke a method to indicate the level of collapse.
  3. Invoke a method to indicate the level splitting.


Design and implement class B+ Tree, which puts together the classes sequence set and B-tree. B-Tree characteristics should be maintained in the index set as before; the sequence set should be maintained so that blocks are always at least half full.

Consider the following suggestions:

  1. Do not compress the keys as you form the separators for the index set.
  2. Keep B-tree nodes in the same file as the sequence set blocks. The header block should contain a reference to the root of the B-tree as well as a reference to the beginning of the sequence set.

PROJECT – 5 Edit

Develop a hashed index of the student record file with the USN as the key.

Write a driver program to create a hashed file from an existing student record file. Demonstrate the recursive collapse of directory over more than one level.

  1. Demonstrate doubling of the directory size.
  2. Display the space utilization for buckets and directory size.

b. Program to recognize whether a given sentence is simple or compound.

  1. Program to recognize and count the number of identifiers in a given input file.

Execute the following programs using YACC:

  1. a. Program to recognize a valid arithmetic expression that uses operators +, -, *

and /.

b. Program to recognize a valid variable, which starts with a letter, followed by any number of letters or digits.

  1. a. Program to evaluate an arithmetic expression involving operators +, -, * and /.

b. Program to recognize strings ‘aaab’, ‘abbb’, ‘ab’ and ‘a’ using the grammar

(anbn, n>= 0).

  1. Program to recognize the grammar (anb, n>= 10).


Unix Programming:

  1. a) Non-recursive shell script that accepts any number of arguments and prints

them in the Reverse order, ( For example, if the script is named rargs, then executing rargs A B C should produce C B A on the standard output).

b) C program that creates a child process to read commands from the standard input and execute them (a minimal implementation of a shell – like program). You can assume that no arguments will be passed to the commands to be executed.

  1. a) Shell script that accepts two file names as arguments, checks if the permissions

for these files are identical and if the permissions are identical, outputs the common permissions, otherwise outputs each file name followed by its permissions.

b) C program to create a file with 16 bytes of arbitrary data from the beginning

and another 16 bytes of arbitrary data from an offset of 48. Display the file contents to demonstrate how the hole in file is handled.

  1. a) Shell function that takes a valid directory names as an argument and recursively

descends all the subdirectories, finds the maximum length of any file in that hierarchy and writes this maximum value to the standard output.

b) C program that accepts valid file names as command line arguments and for

each of the arguments, prints the type of the file ( Regular file, Directory file, Character special file, Block special file, Symbolic link etc.)

  1. a) Shell script that accepts file names specified as arguments and creates a shell

script that contains this file as well as the code to recreate these files. Thus if the script generated by your script is executed, it would recreate the original files(This is same as the “bundle” script described by Brain W. Kernighan and Rob Pike in “ The Unix Programming Environment”, Prentice – Hall India).

b) C program to do the following: Using fork( ) create a child process. The child

process prints its own process-id and id of its parent and then exits. The parent process waits for its child to finish (by executing the wait( )) and prints its own process-id and the id of its child process and then exits.

  1. a) Shell script that accepts path names and creates all the components in that path

names as directories. For example, if the script name is mpe, then the command mpe a/b/c/d should create directories a, a/b, a/b/c, and a/b/c/d.

b) C program that accepts one command-line argument, executes the arguments as a shell command, determines the time taken by it and prints the time values, Use the “times”, function and the “tms” structure. The code need not include error checking.

  1. a) Shell script that accepts valid log-in names as arguments and prints their

corresponding home directories. If no arguments are specified, print a suitable error message.

b) C program that accepts a valid directory names as a command line argument

and lists all the files in the given directory as well as all the subsequent subdirectories. (The solution can be recursive or non-recursive).

  1. a) Shell script to implement terminal locking. It should prompt the user for a

password. After accepting the password entered by the user, it must prompt again for password confirmation ( to retype the password). If a match occurs, it must lock the terminal and prompt for the password. If the proper password is entered, the terminal must be unlocked. Note the script must be written to disregard BREAK, Control-D etc. No time limit need be implemented for the lock duration.

b) C program to prompt the user for the name of an environment variable and

print its value if it is defined and a suitable message otherwise; and to repeat the process if user wants it.


In the examination, a combination of one LEX and one YACC problem has to be asked from Part A for a total of 30 marks and one programming exercise from Part B has to be asked for a total of 20 marks.
