Abstract:

This paper is meant to help beginners get startged with the UNIX operating system. It is by no means all inclusive however, an attempt was made to touch on most topics. It will cover, first, the basics needed for day-to-day use of the system. Included will be typing conventions, special character meanings, logging in and out, the file system, file manipulation, and inter-user communication. Second, it will provide a brief description of the available document preparation programming software. Emacs, the ed editor, C, Basic, Nroff and Troff will be covered. Third, a section of examples and a command summary are included. Finally, there is a list of terms, for those of you who are unfamiliar with some of the language and meanings used in computing, and a reading list of UNIX documents. The reading list contains documents which I have on hand.
