Orwell Dev-C++ with author authentication. Perfect for student homeworks, if you don't want your students to copy their homework files from others.
Authenticated files are regular source files with student's name and a security hash added at the end. Any cheating attempt by copying in the files / changing name will invalidate the hash and can be detected by the teacher. In addition, paste in authenticated files is only allowed from one's own files.
The CheckHash.exe tool checks the hash and reports the authentication status of of all .cpp files in the current directory. This tool is intended for teachers.
How to install: simply download a Setup Release and install it. Alternatively, it is possible to just overwrite devcpp.exe in the original Dev-Cpp installation folder with the one in the zip release, and also add Auth.dll in the same folder.
Dev-C++ for Homeworks is based on Orwell Dev-C++ software. Releases follow upstream releases.
- Works with authenticated files (i.e. homework) and normal files
- Authenticated files request student name, once set it cannot be changed
- Integrity of file is checked using a secure hash appended to the file. Any modification of the file can be detected with the provided tool CheckHash.exe
- Paste in authenticated files is only allowed from one's own authenticated files
