UNIX & LINUX
CAVE programming and scripting is done in an unix or
linux environment. The AD 408 entry level course will introduce you to
UNIX commands. You can also work in a Linux environment which uses commands
very similar to Unix. Linux is available for free to install on your home
computer enabling you to script away from the lab.
INSTALLING LINUX & YGDRASIL
What is Linux?
Linux is an operating system that can be downloaded for free and belongs
to an entire community of developers, not one corporate identity. All
the information about Linux is open source and available to anyone. It
is currently used as an alternative to Windows by such companies as Sony
Electronics, Mercedes-Benz, Oracle & Sun.
See http://www.linux.org for documentation.
Download LINUX | Download Red Hat Linux
Read the Instructions Carefully. At this site you will learn about hardware
requirements and drive partitioning to run Linux and keep your Windows
operating system. I suggest purchasing Partition Magic to partition your
drive because it has one of the easiest graphical user interfaces to use.
