1. Locate the command that will Display statistics on free disk space. What command will do this?
Create a command string that contains the above command and will display the disk space statistics in kilobytes. What command string will do this?

2. You want to save from line #10 to line #30 from file1 to a new file called file2. Use head and tail to do this with one command string (no 's).

3. Execute the finger command as the following:
          finger smcgowan
The output will contain the following line of text:

A.) What command string will do this?
B.) How many characters are in the file pout?

5. In your home directory, create a directory called MID.
cd to this directory.

Create the following files:
notes1a notes2 notes labnotes Notes1 Notes2 labs

Execute the following commands in the exact order specified:
rm Notes2
ls -ld labnotes notes2 notes
cat labs notes labnotes

Using ONLY history references and word identifiers, from these three commands, construct a command string that will remove the files called notes2 and labs.
A.) What command string will do this?

Construct a command string that will remove the files Notes1 and notes1a. This string MUST make use of the [ ]. (Please note that this question does NOT involve using history references)

6. Create an alias called whopw that will do the following:
grep the password file for your username to return your password file entry. Assume the following: once the alias works, you will be letting all of your friends copy and use it. In other words, the alias must locate their password entry when it is run by them without them having to make ANY changes to the alias.
HINT: One way to solve this problem can be found by searching the man pages for the string 'who'
What alias will do this?

7. Normally, when you execute the man command, the output is displayed one page at a time.
If you did not want the output of the man command to be displayed by pages, (i.e. you want all the output at once, as if you were cat'ing a file) what man command option would you use to prevent the paging?

8. I have created an alias called class within my .mailrc file. The alias includes the addresses of all the students in the class as well as my address. Normally, when sending mail to an alias, the sender will not receive a copy of the message even if the senders address is included in the alias.
What mail internal variable do I need to set to insure that I receive a copy of the mail message too?

9. Consider the following command string.
cat > aa < mfile1
A) What is the effect of the redirection characters? Be specific and mention each redirect in your answer.
B) Write another UNIX command that will accomplish the same thing. (Do not use cat or either redirect or a pipe)

10. cd to ~smcgowan/Cyber/Unix. This directory contains a number of files.
What combination of option flags, when used with the ls command, will generate the output in the following format?

Question 5
A)      Answer: assuming that the 1st command has number 686 in history, the 2nd command has the number 687 in history and the last command has number 688 in history, the required command string will be:
$!686:0 !687:3 !688:1

B) $rm *otes1*
There are more ways to accomplish this task – if it is needed to be used [], this means by searching patterns in the filename. The *otes1* means the same thing. It is confusing for a bit because from the formulation it can be understood in more than one way.

Question 6) alias whopw='ypcat passwd | grep `whoami`'...
