TicToc Tutorial for OMNeT++
This short tutorial to OMNeT++ guides you through an example of modeling and simulation, showing you along the way some of the commonly used OMNeT++ features.
The tutorial is based on the Tictoc example simulation, which you can find in the
samples/tictoc directory of your OMNeT++ installation, so you can try out immediately how the examples work. However, you'll find the tutorial much more useful if you actually carry out at least the first steps described here.
- We assume here that you have a working OMNeT++ installation. We also assume that you have a good C++ knowledge, and you are in general familiar with C/C++ development (editing source files, compiling, debugging etc.) on your operating system. (The latter two are out of our scope here -- there are excellent books, tutorials on the web, etc. if you need to update your knowledge on that.) We highly recommend to use the OMNeT++ Integrated Development Environment for editing and building your simulations.
To make the examples easier to follow, all source code in here is cross-linked to the OMNeT++ API documentation.
This document and the TicToc model are an expanded version of the original TicToc tutorial from Ahmet Sekercioglu (Monash University).
