With UNIX becoming the operating system of choice in multi-platform distributed environments, this book provides an introduction and reference for newcomers and casual users alike. Plus, it offers a starting point for mastering the commands and syntax of the OSF/1 (Open Software Foundation) operating system by comparing and contrasting them to standard UNIX. This book gives readers examples of using UNIX commands for managing files and directories; communicating with other system users; implementing the UNIX editors "vi", "ed", "sed" and "ex"; formatting documents using "awk", "nroff", "troff", "ms", "col" and other tools; programming the UNIX shell; backing up and maintaining the systems; and much more. Features include: unique coverage of both OSF/1 and UNIX operating system commands with advice for taking advantage of the enhanced functionality of the OSF/1 system; full descriptions of UNIX interoperability features; guidelines for administering and maintaining UNIX-based machines; over 450 step-by-step examples illustrating how to implement the most common (and uncommon) UNIX commands; summaries of error messages to help users overcome mistakes; and descriptions of commands usually implemented by a UNIX super user.
