UNIX and UNIX-like systems are increasingly being used on personal computers, mobile phones, web servers, and many other systems. They represent a wonderful family of programming environments useful both to computer scientists and to people in many other fields, such as computational biology and computational linguistics, in which data is naturally represented by strings. This course takes students from shell basics and piping, to regular-expression processing tools, to shell scripting and Python. Other topics to be covered include handling concurrent and remote resources, manipulating streams and files, and managing software installations.

When Offered Spring. (Weeks 1-6)

Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: one programming course or equivalent programming experience. No previous knowledge of UNIX or expertise in any particular language is assumed.
