OOP-3 SortNames

I have completed the SortNames assignment, whilst waiting for the nitpicking of OOP-2 NaturalLanguageMultiply, and I have a question about how to submit multiple classes.

My solution has two classes: SortNames.class & People.class. Shall I email them as separate files?, or perhaps paste the People class at the end of the SortNames class, with some obvious break like *******************.

By the way, these two assignments are my favourites so far! Although SortNames drove me mad for ages.

Hey Nick, glad you're having fun with the OOPs part, at least after getting over the madness.

It's probably best if you can send the classes in one email, that way there's less chance of things falling through any email cracks. A few blank lines and the class comments would probably mark the start of the second class well enough.

I have been submitting my assignments in the body of the email like this:

Dear Nitpickers,

Submission follows. Abuse at will.

Kind regards,

If I don't have any comments, a single empty line separates the end of a class and the beginning of the next.

This is one of the few things that hasn't been nitpicked

I don't send *.class files at all. Just the text in the *.java file.
