Additional project requirement:

Interpret the results of running a working simulator on the files in ~kelliher/pub/cs23/hw4/ . What would you expect to happen to the service time as the inter-arrival time is varied? Do the simulator results bear out your expectations?

There is a working simulator, named simulator, in that directory. It takes a data file name as a command line argument.

Your first step should be in determining how long, on average, it takes to go through the Motor Vehicle Department when business is slow (i.e., there is only one person at a time within the department). This gives you the average service time under ``no-load'' conditions. Then, predict what should happen to the averages service time as the load (which is affected by the inter-arrival times) varies.

Include your analysis in your README file.
