In this assignment, you will be given ZERO instruction in HOW to accomplish it! The
actual requirements are very simple to satisfy. This is a test of how well you can
research the topic and satisfy the conditions of this Assignment on your own. This is
how much of the real world works – you’ll be thrown into situations that are full of
unknowns, and you’ll need to come up with a solution!

You are becoming a computer scientist, not a technician: you will learn how to handle
ANY language thrown at you, not just the ones you are spoon-fed, by learning good
research habits and techniques. The more problems you encounter and solve, the
greater problem set you’ll be able to infer solutions to from your background of
This is by far the easiest assignment in this course – it’s worth the least points, with the
most time to accomplish it. You will use what you’ve learned here in later courses at


For this assignment, you will create a script in the Python language. You can read more
about Python here: (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.
All execution, compiling, and testing of this script should ONLY be done in the bash
prompt on our class server!
Your script must satisfy the following requirements:
1. Be contained in one single file, called
2. When executed, create 3 files in the same directory as your script, each
named differently (the name of the files is up to you), which remain there after
your script finishes executing. Each of these 3 files must contain exactly 10
random characters from the lowercase alphabet, with no spaces
(“hoehdgwkdq”, for example). The final (eleventh) character of each file
should be a newline character.
3. When executed, print out on screen the contents of the 3 files it is creating in
exactly the format given below.
4. When executed, after the file contents of all three files have been printed,
print out two random integers (whose range is from 1 to 42, inclusive), and
print out the product of the two numbers, again in exactly the format given

You do not have to parse and read the data back in from the files created in step 2 in
order to complete step 3. For step 3, just dump the contents that you already randomly
generated in your program directly onto the screen, if that’s the easiest way for you. I
recommend that you look into sys.stdout.write() for outputting text, as it will allow you to
control newlines better.

Note that the visual format for all of this is completely up to you! The graders will simply
be checking for the above requirements to assign your grade. Further, no help on this
assignment will be provided by the Instructor or TAs at any time.
You can choose to use Python 2 or Python 3. The TAs will try all three of these
commands to find one that works with your script:
$ python
$ python2.7
$ python3
Python is NOT a topic that will be covered on the Final.

Example Output

Here’s an example of the script being run; all output is random except for the last line.
$ python
I HIGHY recommend that you develop this program directly on our server, instead of
one your personal machine. Doing so will prevent you from having problems transferring
the program back and forth, which can cause compatibility issues.
If you do see ^M characters all over your files, try this command:
% dos2unix bustedFile
