Chewbacca moved up to major leagues, throws 99-mph pitch at Fenway

bigj is taking CS-161 which I took about 6 years ago. My C++ is very rusty, so I thought I'd try and do the homework as he goes along to see if I can't keep up. Week 1 consists of "Hello World" which took me a good 20 minutes to figure out, even with Google. Using a modern linux distro with modern C libraries there were some namespace issues I wasn't expecting. After I figured that out I got my "Hello World" compiling in a flash. I think I'll do the homework in both Perl and C++, we'll see how it goes. Here's what I have so far!
