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:

WWW Basic Content Management - Connect to the Server

The Account You Will Use

  • OIT will provision you a "Unix Account" on either spot.colorado.edu or rintintin.colorado.edu. This account will use your CU Login Name (the username you use with your IdentIKey password), however the password will be different than your IdentiKey. You can manually make the password be the same, if that is your preference, but the password will not synchronize with your IdentiKey automatically.

WWW Basic Content Management - Password Protect Web Pages

Overview

Below is a brief explanation of how to set up password protection of web pages hosted on our WWW basic content management service.

First you can only protect directories. You cannot specify individual pages. But this is easily worked around by making subdirectories.

These notes only explain how to set up passwords for individual users. You can give each user on a page their own username and password, or you can give the same username and password to everyone who needs access to the pages. The latter is much easier to maintain, and works well for almost all pages that require passwords, such as a course, department, committee, etc.

Getting Started

Create a directory in your web space. Inside of it, create a file called .htaccess (notice that the file name begins with a period). The .htaccess file should contain these lines, modified to match your web site (explanations of each line are just below):
