Working Paper

This is a manual for complete beginners. It requires little knowledge of the MIT computer systems, and assumes no knowledge of the UNIX operating system. This guide will show you how to log onto the AI Lab's SUN system using a SUN III or similar workstation or a non-dedicated terminal. Many of the techniques described will be applicable to other computers running UNIX. You will learn how to use various operating system and network features, send and receive electronic mail, create and edit files using GNU EMACS, process text using YTEX, and print your files.
