This means you must protect your code from access by others. Do not leave it where others can find it. Do not give it to someone for submission on your behalf. Do not use any fragment of code obtained online or from someone else, except what is explicitly authorised as a part of the course. Falsifying program output or results is cheating also.
When in doubt, please ask your professor.
Students who are caught cheating will be given a 0 and a full letter-grade
penalty. Second violation will result in summary failure from the course.
Audit-pass is not an option open to Cheaters.
