Unix is a popular operating system used on many central systems and web servers. This workshop is intended for people who have little or no experience working with Unix from the command line. It gives a quick overview of how Unix works, explains the directory structures, and provides guided practice with core file management commands and setting file permissions. File archiving, file compression, and secure file copying are also covered.
Note: At IU, Unix and Linux are the operating systems used to run research systems, the central Web servers (www/webserve, mypage/Mercury), storage systems (RFS, MDSS), and many enterprise information systems.
