Some UNIX tips
You can copy the files xmosaic201 and lynx201 similarly.
(Although, one would assume that if you are reading this,
you already know how to use lynx or mosaic :)
- Use the UNIX "ls" command to see if you have a directory
- If not, create this directory by typing
- Then copy the cc201 command by typing
cp ~nicholas/pub/201/cc201 bin
- Check that you copied correctly by typing
A file called "cc201" should be listed.
- Logout and log back in.
If you want to send a text file to someone from PINE,
it is frequently more convenient for the receiver of your mail
message that you do not include it as a MIME attachment.
It is difficult in some mail readers to convert from MIME back to
a text file. While it makes sense to use MIME formats if you
are sending an image or sound file, it is not necessary to do this
for text files.
To include a file, simply compose your message, then use the
-R command and type the name of the file you want to include.
