IEEE CS – Linux Basic and Advanced Commands

The 3rd session of the IEEE Computer Society CET Chapter held on 4th May 2017, was strictly for the IEEE members. The session was devoted to Linux commands(basic and advanced). Session was handled by Nisham. Starting from the very basic bash commands like echo, seq, ls etc… He proceeded to advanced ones like grep, sed and ssh.

The session was entirely practical. Students were made to try out commands on their systems. Operations like string search and replace using grep were dealt in detail. Output redirection (copying the contents of one file to another) and pipes were introduced. Logging onto a remote server, copying the files from the server to one’s own system was another topic of discussion.

The session was wound up by 6pm. Feedback was collected from the attendees.
