MyCUInfo Being Redesigned for Ease-of-Use

News Tag(s)

You spoke and we listened. You asked for less clutter and more direct access to the things you use most in the MyCUInfo portal. And so on April 30, thanks to the efforts of the CU-Boulder portal usability team, MyCUInfo will undergo an update to make it easier for faculty, staff and students to find the information and resources that they use most.

Unix Guide - OIT Unix Editors

Overview

Three screen editors are available on OIT Unix systems. They are pico, vi, and emacs.

pico

Pico is the editor that pine uses by default to compose messages. If you use pine, you will find pico very easy to use. Even if you do not use pine, pico is a very simple screen editor to learn. The commands are always listed at the bottom of the screen. If you lack experience with editors, this is probably the one for you.

To view the online manual pages for this edtor, type man pico at the prompt:

Unix Guide - Printing

The lpr Command

The first thing to know is the lpr command. The basic syntax to print any file on any printing resource is

spot> lpr -P resource-name file-name

where resource-name is the name of the printing resource (ie, printer) and file-name is the name of the file to be printed. Unix print jobs are "spooled," which means the file specified by the lpr command is copied into a "spooling directory," where it is actually printed.

Unix Guide - OIT Unix Compilers

Compilers

This is an overview of how to compile programs on Unix machines. The examples are specific to the C compiler but can be applied to all Unix compilers. Note that compilers are available only on rintintin, rastro, and eddie--not on the information-only machines like spot. To find out which compilers are on a particular machine, type:

man -k compile

This command will produce a list of all the compilers that have manual pages and will indicate which sections address compilers. For example, on spot the output looks like this:
