Hi In best academic tradition, the answer is Yes and No (but mostly No). It matters greatly that you use the top level name that I have specified. Thus: malaria_incidence and common_words in the last assignment and style_cmp for this assignment. is a different name and won't be found. That I've done in setting up autotesting for Assignment 1 is try to rescue and many programs with divergent names as possible (but at penalty of 2 marks). However, internal to your program, what you call your scripts below the top level program is entirely up to you. Of course, you'll need to be consistent. Fair enough? Cheers MichaelW
