Connect to a UNIX system, log in, and log out.
Change your password.
Set up your terminal or workstation to
communicate with a UNIX system.
Display online help resources and get
printed copies of online documents.
Create and maintain files and directories of files.
Use an editing program to alter files.
Print files and move them to and from other computer systems.
Compile and run programs you have written.
Send mail to other users and read messages they send to you.
Do elementary shell programming.
