For introductory courses in the UNIX operating system.
Using clear-cut examples, this tutorial introduces students to the UNIX operating system, including its historical development, major versions, and important features. It covers the topics necessary for users to function independently and handle routine tasks, giving students a foundation for exploring more advanced UNIX topics.
• Consistent chapter structure - Builds knowledge with a general explanation of concepts and topics, followed by more detailed and complex commands and examples as the chapter progresses.
• Fundamentals of computer hardware and software - Explains the importance of the operating system and explores its primary functions.
• Chronological perspective - Reviews the historical development of UNIX, then continues with major UNIX versions and the system's important features.
• UNIX-supported editors - Discusses the power and flexibility of the vi editor, from basic to more advanced commands and how to customize the vi environment.
• File structures - Offers two chapters on the concepts of files and directories, including file manipulation commands, shell input/output redirection operators, and file substitution metacharacters.
• The shell and its role in the UNIX system - Explains shell features and capabilities, including variables, metacharacters, startup files, process management, and shell programming.
• Writing Applications - Presents an application program and shows the process of developing programs using the shell language.
• Essentials of software development - Reviews the process of creating a program, using an example of a simple C++ program to walk students through the process of writing source code, compiling, and creating an excitable program.
• A new chapter on the Emacs editor as an alternative to the vi editor.
• Additional stand-alone commands and topics.
• Revised end-of-chapter exercises and Terminal Sessions.
