This tutorial guides you through building and working with an example simulation model, 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 the steps described here. We assume that you have a good C++ knowledge, and you are in general familiar with C/C++ development (editing source files, compiling, debugging etc.) 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).
