Overview

This afternoon workshop is targeted at users of the Deepthought2 and/or Juggernaut clusters with limited experience in Linux/Unix. This course will briefly cover:

  • Linux/Unix shell commands
  • comparison of C-shell (tcsh) and Bourne shell (bash)
  • shell scripting (basic and advanced syntax)
  • accessing data in various formats on Unix

While shell scripting is not real programming, many practical tasks can be accomplished using shell scripts. Worked-out examples can be used as templates for similar projects.

Prerequisites

None. This is an introductory workshop and is targeted at new users to Linux/Unix.

System Requirements

As this webinar will be offered via Zoom, you are assumed to have a system (preferably a laptop or desktop) with Zoom installed. You will likely also want to either open an interactive terminal on Deepthought2 or Juggernaut or use the file explorer and editor of the OnDemand portal.
