Introductionto Unix:


what you will learn
What You Will Learn
  • The fundamental commands of theUnixoperating system.
  • Everything told for Unixhere is applicable to theLinux operating systemalso.
what is unix
What is Unix
  • UNIXis a computer operating system, a control program that works with users to


–manageresources, and

–communicate with other computer systems.

  • Several people can use a UNIX computer at the same time; hence UNIX is called a multiusersystem. Any of these users can also run multiple programs at the same time; hence UNIX is called multitasking.
logging on to a unix machine
Logging on to a UNIX machine
  • Because UNIX is a multiuseroperating system, you need to start by finding a terminal, computer, or other way to access the system.
  • Connect your terminal or PC to the UNIX system until the point where you see a login prompt(login:) on your screen. Use the phone and modem to dial up the computer if you need to.
connecting a pc ms windows to unix system
Connectinga PC (MS-Windows) toUnix System
  • The machinethatwearegoingtoconnect is
  • Select Start → RunandtypeSshClient in the emptybox
  • Thiswill start the SSH program

ChooseQuickConnect, a newwindowwillcomeupto the screen

  • In the HostNamesection,
  • In the UserNamesection, enteryourloginname
  • Leave other parts as theirdefaultvalues.

WhenyoupressConnectbutton, youwillsee a passwordprompt.

  • Enteryourpasswordexactlyandpress OK button.
  • Yourlogin name andpasswordarecase-sensitive.

You are now logged into the computer and will have a prompt that reflects the computer\'s name. For example, if you connect to hyperionmachine, the prompt looks like this:

[[email protected] ~]$

  • Once you’ve successfully entered your account name and password, you are shown some information about the system, some news for users, and an indication of whether you have electronic mail. The specifics will vary.
  • At this point, you’re ready to enter your first UNIX command.
shell commands of unix
ShellCommands of UNIX
  • Unix Commands
  • When you first log into a unix system, you are presented with something that looks like the following:

[[email protected] ~]

  • That “something” is called a prompt.As its name would suggest, it is prompting you to enter a command.
  • Every unix command is a sequence ofletters,numbersandcharacters.But there are no spaces.

Unix is alsocase-sensitive. ThismeansthatcatandCataredifferentcommands.

  • Theprompt is displayedby a special program calledtheshell.
  • Shellsacceptcommands, andrunthosecommands.
  • They can also be programmed in theirownlanguage. Theseprogramsarecalled “shellscripts”.

Therearetwomajortypes of shells in unix:

    • Bourneshells
    • C shells.
  • Steven Bournewrote the original unixshellsh, and most shells since then end in the letters sh to indicate they are extentionson the original idea
  • Linux comeswith a Bourneshellcalledbashwrittenby the Free Software Foundation.
  • bashstandsforBourneAgainShelland is the defaultshelltouserunninglinux

Whenyoufirstlogin, the prompt is displayedbybash, andyouarerunningyourfirstunix program, thebashshell.

  • As long as youarelogged in, thebashshellwillconstantly be running.
storing information
  • Unix providesfilesanddirectories.
  • Adirectoryis like afolder:it containspieces of paper, orfiles.
  • A largefolder can evenholdotherfolders-directories can be inside directories.
  • Inunix, thecollection of directoriesandfiles is calledthe file system.Initially, the file systemconsists of onedirectory, calledthe“root”directory
  • Inside “root” directory, there are more directories, and inside those directories are files and yet more directories.

Each file and each directory has a name.

  • Ashort namefor a file could be joe,
  • while it’s “full name” would be /home/larry/joe.Thefull nameis usuallycalledthepath.
  • The pathcan be divideinto a sequence of directories.
  • For example, here is how /home/larry/joeis read:

A pathcouldrefertoeither a directoryor a filename, sojoecould be either.

  • Alltheitemsbeforetheshort name must be directories.

To seelinuxcommandspressTabkey,

  • If youwanttolearncommandsbeginningwith c you can write cthenpressTabkey/home/larry# c
obtaining help
  • The mancommand displays reference pagesfor the commandyou specify.
  • The UNIX manpages (man is short for manual) cover every command available.
  • To search for a manpage, enter manfollowed by the name of the command to find .

[[email protected] ~]$ manls

(press q toexit)

obtaining help1
  • ToExitpress q

man ((obtaininghelp))

  • There is also a keywordfunctionin man.
  • For example; –If youareinterested in anycommandsthatdeal with Postscript, theprintercontrollanguageforAdobe
  • Type man -k psor man -k Postscript,
  • you’ll get a listing of all commands, system calls, and otherdocumented parts of unix that have the word “ps” (or “Postscript”) in their name or short description.
  • This can be very useful when you’re looking for a tool to do something, but you don’t know it’s name-or if it even exists!
