Course pages 2016–17
This year, this course is being delivered online (for the first time), in the form of a series of prerecorded video lectures (now complete). This change is in response to feedback from students in previous years, who wanted more opportunity to immediately try the material presented on a computer. Feedback on this new format will be much appreciated.
I will be available in the Intel Lab Tuesdays and Thursdays 11:00-12:00 to distribute printed lecture notes, answer questions, and assist students with doing the exercises.
- Unix Tools slides (2up, 4up for printing), exercises
- Arthur Norman’s original course notes, slightly revised (available on paper at first lecture)
Tools answers to exercises
[access limited to supervisors and (after end of course) students]
Manual pages of some major tools discussed in the course, formatted in PDF for easy printing on A4 paper (or reading on tablets):
- Single UNIX Specification (shell command language, utility conventions, sh, make)
- GNU Tools Source Code: bash, coreutils, make, rcs
- Subversion manual
- Perl documentation, Comprehensive Perl Archive Network (CPAN), Perl.com, Perl Mongers
- Installing Linux on your own PC in Cambridge
