Introduction to Computers


Software l.jpg
Software

  • Software is set of programs (which are step by step instructions) telling the computer how to process data.

  • Software needs to be installed on a computer, usually from a CD.

  • Softwares can be divided into two groups:

    - System SW

    - Application SW

Introduction to Computers


Software contd l.jpg
Software (Contd.)

System Software

  • It controls the overall operation of the system.

  • It is stored in the computer's memory and instructs the computer to load, store, and execute an application.

  • Examples: Operating System (OS), Translators

    DOS, Windows, Unix etc.

Introduction to Computers

    Introduction to Computers


    Ms dos overview l.jpg
    MS-DOS Overview

    • MS-DOS is an acronym for MicroSoft Disk Operating System

    • It is a CUI based operating system.

    • It provides user with a command prompt (generally called as C:\) where various command could be typed.

    • When one operates in the DOS environment, one interacts with the command interpreter, which interprets the commands given by user.

    • It provides an environment for execution of various application programs like MS-Word, MODBANKER, ISBS etc.

    Introduction to Computers


    What is command l.jpg
    What is Command

    • It is a string of characters which tells the computer what to do.

    • When one types commands to a computer, one is conversing with the operating system's command interpreter.

    • For example, to copy a file called file.txt from the 3-1/2" floppy drive to the hard drive, one could type

      C:\> copy a:\file.txt c:\

      The word "copy" is a DOS command which causes files to be copied from one location to another

    Introduction to Computers


    Entering the dos environment l.jpg
    Entering the DOS Environment

    • A file is a collection of Records.

    • It is the smallest unit of File System (Storage) in a computer.

    • Any document created using computer is a file. This document could either be a letter, any excel sheet, any image or even a database.

      Directory

    • A collection of files is directory (in DOS) or folder (in Windows)

    • It is analogous to the Office Folder which contains various documents.

    • A directory/folder eases the management of related files/ documents, like the various circulars related to personnel could be placed in a directory called “personnel” and all the circulars related to loans could be placed in a directory called “loans”.

    Introduction to Computers


    Filenames in dos l.jpg
    Filenames in DOS?

    • The filename in DOS have the following format.

      <name>.<ext>

    • The name could be of 8 characters and the extension of 3 characters.

    • The filename can contain alphabets and numbers. It cannot contain any special character other than underscore (_) and also no spaces.

    Introduction to Computers


    Organization of files in dos l.jpg
    Organization of files in DOS

    • The DOS file system is a hierarchical file system.

    • Files are collected into directories, and directories may contain both files and other directories.

    • There is always a directory which is not contained by any other, called the root which is represented by the backslash '\' character.

    Introduction to Computers


    Organization of files in dos contd l.jpg
    Organization of files in DOS (Contd.)

    • Concept of Path: Every file can be specified by enumerating all of the directories between the root and it, separated by the backslash '\' character, and appending the file name to the end.

    • The drive which contains the root is specified at the head of the path, separated from the root by a colon (':')

    • The hard drive is most commonly known as the C: drive, and the floppy drives are usually called A:(3-1/2 inch) and B: (5-1/4 inch).
