THE UNIX OPERATING SYSTEM


Introduction to Unix

As an operating system, Unix is similar in some ways to DOS, but it is much more capable and complex. Our Unix systems at Smith provide a number of applications that are full-featured, but simple to use.

Using Pico on Sophia
Pico is an easy to use text editor for Unix. If you already know how to use Pine mail, then you are well on your way to mastering Pico. Pico uses very slight variations on the Pine editing commands, but the function is often parallel to Pine.
