usask_cba_calc

A command-line tool designed to calculate the first-year engineering grades for students at the University of Saskatchewan's College of Engineering. This tool takes an input file in JSON format and provides the calculated GPA and other relevant information. The tool is written in Rust to take advantage of Rust's excellent data modelling capabilities.

Installation

  1. Install Rust: If you don't already have Rust installed on your system, you can do so by visiting the official Rust website and following their installation instructions.

  2. Install the Binary: Use cargo to install the binary from crates.io cargo install usask_cba_calculator

  3. Verify Installation: Run the following command in your terminal usask_cba_calc --help

  3. Type usask_cba_calc /path/to/file.json

NOTE: You can also pipe in data to the tool.

Input file schema

The way the input file needs to be structured is very specific, follow the general layout shown below
