Basic Shell Commands and Python Exercises

Basic Shell Commands

This week in ECE 2524, we took a look at some of the basic shell commands listed below.

alias diff man rmdir unalias
cat echo mkdir script whereis
cd exit more source which
cp hostname mv ssh whoami
chmod less pwd tar ps
date ls rm touch grep
find head tail ln wc

The exercise was pretty straight forward. As a small group, we divided the commands for each person to research. For each of our commands, we had to find the usage of the command, common flags and options, and some examples. In my opinion, the exercise would have been more helpful if after we discussed our commands, we had an exercise where we would have to use some or most of the commands. However, overall the exercise was a good learning exercise.


Python Exercises

We have been following along with an online book, Learn Python the Hard Way, that will teach us how to program in python. I have made it through exercise 9, and so far it has been very helpful. I have quite a bit of experience in various other languages, and this book helps me see the connection Python has with them. I look forward to going through the rest of the book.
