Using software in Unix
Posted on 2003-11-27
I'm trying to find out more about using
Unix. In particular, how to use shell
After looking into this a little bit
on my own. I'm not sure if I have the
right idea about how this works.
I read an article on how to telnet and
open a free shell account on nether.net
Which I did, but I can't see what this
service really does. I had the idea
that if I learned how to access a Unix
shell I would be accessing a Unix OS.
And that I'd be able to use Unix software,
but I don't see how you go about setting up
any software. I just got logged on
and that seems to be all there is to do.
Unless you want to reconnect to some other
So my question is, can a Unix shell be used
to set up and operate Unix software.
