Working with UNIX Files and Directories

To demonstrate common UNIX commands and programs used to perform basic tasks involving files and directories

Learning Objectives
  • UNIX file types and functions - describe the different kinds of files found on a UNIX system, and explain their functions.
  • Listing and viewing UNIX files - use the ls command and interpret its output, and use the cat command to view the contents of text files.
  • Navigating the UNIX filesystem - use absolute and relative paths, as well as common shortcuts, to navigate directory hierarchies.
  • Creating and deleting UNIX files - create and delete files, and assign ownership and permissions.
  • Using UNIX filesystem commands - navigate a filesystem, create a file, and set permissions.
  • UNIX regular expression characters - list the characters used in regular expressions, and describe their functions.
  • Searching UNIX files with patterns - use regular expressions to locate files.
  • Using find and grep in UNIX - use the find command to locate files and the grep command to search their contents.
  • UNIX naming conventions - describe the conventions and limitations that apply to UNIX filesystems and compare them with conventions used by other operating systems.
  • Working with UNIX directories - create and delete directories and copy or move files.
  • Organizing a UNIX filesystem - organize files into a directory structure.
  • Linking UNIX files - use hard links and symbolic links.
  • UNIX file and directory command reference - list the commands used to manage files and directories.

Working with UNIX Programs

To describe how to use UNIX programs and manage their execution

Learning Objectives
  • The UNIX process hierarchy - explain the process hierarchy.
  • Running UNIX background jobs - run jobs in the background and monitor processes.
  • Scheduling UNIX jobs - use the cron and at facilities to schedule job execution.

  • Common UNIX programs - discuss the common programs that are installed on most UNIX systems.
  • Using UNIX composite commands - explain the principles of using redirection, pipes, and filters to create composite commands.
  • Using UNIX composite commands and filters - manipulate text files with composite commands and filters.

Text Editing and Printing in UNIX

To describe how to use the vi text editor and how to print documents

Learning Objectives
  • Working with text in UNIX - explain the importance of text in a UNIX environment, and describe the range of UNIX tools available for manipulating text.
  • Introducing UNIX editing with vi - perform core editing tasks using vi.
  • UNIX search and replace using vi - search and replace text strings using vi.
