Coping With Unix
COPING WITH UNIX, A SURVIVAL GUIDE
- What it is not:
- A Unix manual.
- What is it?
- An electronic survival kit for coping with the complexities of a scientific
computing project from start to finish under a Unix operating system.
- Who is it for?
- Scientists and engineers
to write and organize files and programs, as well as run, debug, and
visualize the results (NOT computer scientists who care about the 23 options/command) .
- Based on the real book:
- (no weeks on the NYT Best Sellers List), A Scientist's and Engineer's Guide to Workstations and
by Rubin H. Landau and Paul J. Fink, Jr, published by John
Sons, New York, 1993. The electronic materials derive from just part of that book
and is for development and research purposes.
Your feedback is encouraged and appreciated (and the authors would not object if you purchased the real book).
- Don't try to master every aspect of every available command and utility; learn the
minimum you need to get your job done and pick up more as you become familiar with the
- In Three Parts:
- Part I, Getting Started
Part II, Tools
Part III, Techniques for Power Users
- Supported by:
- A US National Science Foundation curriculum and laboratory development grant at OSU,
a DOE/Nuclear Physics
Division grant at OSU,
and the Northwest Alliance for Computational Science and Engineering (NACSE) (part of the NSF-funded Metacenter Regional Alliance).
