Accommodation is particularly tight on the night of Saturday 30th January due to a major sporting event in Geelong on that day. We strongly advise that you arrange travel to arrive in Geelong on Sunday 31st January due to the demand for accommodation on the evening of Saturday 30th January. Do not leave it to the last minute to arrange hotel accommodation!

Prerequisites

This is a tutorial, and has hands-on exercises for you to do to help understand the material presented. Please make sure that:

  • You can use a text editor (vi emacs nano gedit — I don't care)
  • You have a laptop with plenty of charge. There will be some power available; I don't know how much.
  • You can get access to a Bourne compatible shell. Most machines will have /bin/sh as a link to a Bourne-compatible shell. Such shells include:
    • dash
    • bash
    • ksh

Material

We'll be using only standard commands — ls sed awk grep test etc. One non-standard command you may wish to install for the first exercise is sysvbanner. On Debian or Ubuntu do:

apt-get install sysvbanner

It doesn't seem to be available for CentOS, but for RedHAT and Fedora you can do:

yum install banner

To save time (and contention on the server at tutorial time) please grab

 http://ssrg.nicta.com.au/Downloads/lca16/shell-tut-examples.tgz

and unpack it with

 tar xzvf shell-tut-examples.tgz

This will save you typing time, and provide the data files you need for the final exercises.
