Example text

Their efforts quickly improved Unix and created many features we now take for granted. Students added the ability to control running processes, also known as job control. The Unix S51K filesystem made system administrators cry like small children, so they replaced it with the Fast File System, whose features have spread into every modern filesystem. Many small, useful programs were written over the years, gradually replacing entire swaths of Unix. The Computer Science Research Group (CSRG) at the University of California, Berkeley, participated in these improvements and also acted as a central clearinghouse for Unix code improvements.

The resulting collection of software came to be known as the Berkeley Software Distribution, or BSD. 2 I n t rod uct io n BSD users took the software and improved it further, then fed their enhancements back into BSD. Today, we consider this to be a fairly standard way for an open source project to run, but in 1979 it was revolutionary. BSD was also quite successful; if you check the copyright statement on an old BSD system, you’ll see this: Copyright 1979, 1980, 1983, 1986, 1988, 1989, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994 The Regents of the University of California.

To use this book to its full potential, you need to have familiarity with some basic tasks, such as how to change directories, list files in a directory, and log in with a username and password. If you’re not familiar with basic commands and the Unix shell, I recommend you begin with a book like UNIX System Administration Handbook by Evi Nemeth and friends (Prentice Hall PTR, 2006). To make things easier on newer system administrators, I include the exact commands needed to produce the desired results.
