There is a section on that, but I will leave it to you to read outside of class. Next, we will dive into taking notes with emacs org-mode. I take most of my referecne notes in org-mode and some students use it to keep track of the their research and draft material for their thesis. All of the lecture notes for this class and the homework assignments are written in org-mode format.
The end of this document links to homework due on Thursday. Please pay close attention to detail when doing the homework. Sometimes you have a second computer next to you when working. One of the many ways that you can take advantage of that computer by using it referenec view “man pages”.
Ubuntu has the man pages online. We are using “Ubuntu Try searching for minmax. If you eeference the search box in the top left, you will be taken to a menu of Ubuntu versions. Safari Books Online provides technical books online.
UNH has a subscription, so if you are a student, staff or faculty at UNH, you can get access to a wide range of technical books. If you are not at UNH and your job does not provide the service, you can sign up for a personal account. This can save you a lot of money over buying a large number of books. However, I do not think that you can take these with you off line and I still like caard tree” books aka the real thing.
You should now be able to get access to a very large number of books. Some books that might be useful for this lecture ”’NOTE: There have been questions in class as to how to find out which software is installed.
I’ll give you a quick intruduction here. First, how do you find out which version of linux you are using? Most linux systems have a file that describes the version of linux. There are many different ways to look at the software on a Ubuntu computer, but this is the way that I go about it.
