First, it is only necessary to hand in the completed program once part two is finished. Part one is an interim exercise necessary for initial testing only. It is suggested that this program be saved as ResTolFile.py.
Use the res3300 file from the course web page for processing. The direct link is https://www2.mvcc.edu//users/faculty/jfiore/CP/res3300.txt . It will be most handy if this file is copied to the root directory of a USB drive so that it may be accessed via the form: “X:\res3300.txt”, where X is the USB drive letter. This file contains over 500 randomized resistor values.
