Working Paper

This is a manual for complete beginners. It assumes no knowledge of the MIT computer systems. This guide will teach you how to log onto the computer called OZ, a DEC PDP-20 computer running the TWENEX (TOPS-20) operating system. You will learn how to use various operating system features, send and receive electronic mail, create and edit files using EMACS, process text using YTEX, and print out your files. This manual has a companion on-line directory on OZ, called <LIZ.GUIDE>, which contains sample programs and examples to use in conjunction with this guide.
