Unix Power Tools Revisited
Tuesday, April 25 2000 at 7:00-9:00 pm
College of DuPage SRC 2800(D,E,F)
In today's world of GUI environments, character base professionalism has become
a diminishing skill set. As people are more inclined to drag, drop, and click
with icons and GUI menus, emphasis on traditional skill sets have diminished.
This presentation is a refresher on the strengths of UNIX. To be specific, this
presentation reminds of the strengths of UNIX through examining very powerful
text base scripting procedures which highlight the strengths of:
Taking Advantage of Coutesy Loads
Examining useful I/O and Command
Useful Korn Shell Extensions
Establishing Useful Functions and Aliases
Very useful examples will be provided which could be utilized in your UNIX
environments. This includes shell and perl scripts which are useful tools for
System Administrator, UNIX Users, and Customer Support.
Very detailed handouts will be provided to supplement the subject matter.
