INTRO(1) BSD General Commands Manual INTRO(1)NAME
intro -- introduction to general commands (tools and utilities)
Section one of the manual contains most of the commands which comprise the BSD user environment. Some of the commands included in section
one are text editors, command shell interpreters, searching and sorting tools, file manipulation commands, system status commands, remote
file copy commands, mail commands, compilers and compiler tools, formatted output tools, and line printer commands.
All commands set a status value upon exit which may be tested to see if the command completed normally. The exit values and their meanings
are explained in the individual manuals. Traditionally, the value 0 signifies successful completion of the command.

What version should I use, or should I try and learn something different first before I got to BSD? (5 Replies)

How could you put the output of two commands into one file using a single command? For example put the output of a grep command and a sort command into one file together.
Here is another rough explanation of what I am trying to do;
$ grep pattern file1
plus output of
$ sort file... (8 Replies)

First of all want to apologize for such a simple question. Very "new" to UNIX and have just taken a small intro class.

I am... (7 Replies)

I don't really know much about UNIX commands, so if someone could help me understand how to do this, I'd really appreciate it.
