Abstract : This paper is meant to help beginners get startged with the UNIX operating system. It is by no means all inclusive; however, an attempt was made to touch on most topics. It will cover, first, the basics needed for day-to-day use of the system. Included will be: typing conventions, special character meanings, logging in and out, the file system, file manipulation, and inter-user communication. Second, it will provide a brief description of the available document preparation programming software. Emacs, the 'ed' editor, C, Basic, Nroff and Troff will be covered. Third, a section of examples and a command summary are included. Finally, there is a list of terms, for those of you who are unfamiliar with some of the language and meanings used in computing, and a reading list of UNIX documents. The reading list contains documents which I have on hand.
