Learning the UNIX Operating System teaches the basic system utility commands to get you started with UNIX. We’ve chosen the topics and commands that we feel a new user should learn. Instead of overwhelming you with a barrage of details, we want you to be comfortable in the UNIX environment as sood as possible; therefore, we cover the most useful features of a command instead of detailing all its options. Appendix A lists additional references. After reading this handbook, you should be able to do these things: Log in and log out of your system, Control the system with control characters, Send messages to other users, Manage UNIX files and directories, including listing creating, copying, printing and removing files, and moving in and out of directories, Work more efficiently using UNIX pipes, filters and multi-tasking.
