This homework exercise serves as a drill on applying the visitor pattern to the list data structure. It is based on the previous homework and lab 03.
Your task is to rewrite the solution to the previous homework
to use the visitor pattern.
You should have a visitor corresponding to each of the
You are free to add
any private and protected methods to your visitor classes to
support your public operations. You are also free to write
helper visitors to support your main visitors. You are not

Grading: We anticipate returning grade reports for assignment 1 prior to your turning in this assignment. Since the two assignments should have the same behavior, you will not be graded here for your test cases. In fact, you may use the ones you see in your assignment 1 feedback. On the other hand, we will now have higher expectations for your code style and documentation.
The homework is due Monday 12 Feb., 2001 10:00 AM. Your directory
/home/your-user-id/comp212/hw-visitor/should contain the standard files (well-written Java source code including a client to test it all,
README, UML diagram, Javadoc documentation) and be submitted from your
comp212directory with the command
turnin -c comp212 -p hw-visitor hw-visitor
