Shell Commands

This is a guide for more advanced users on a X-windows workstation, or users who are working on a non-graphics terminal. If you are using a X-windows workstation (as in the DPO) you should work through the ``Introduction for new users'' before starting this document.

The ``Introduction for new users'' document describes how to log on to the teaching system and perform simple file manipulation using the File Manager graphical environment. This document provides an overview of the facilities provided by the command line and then describes some of the more useful utilities on the system.
