Are we always required to check the magic cookie? Or, is this dependent on the assignment. My assignment is the B&S ver. 2.2.3, and nowhere in my assignment can I find anything about checking the magic cookie, its existence is only revealed as part of the database file description.
If I need to check it, how would I know which value I should expect? Is it the value I get when I run it against the file received as part of the assignment?
Hope anyone can help me on this.
