Or you can have UNIX send output to a line printer instead of to the screen. ) The symbols used in a command line to request redirection are the less than sign «) and the greater than sign (» (( SHIFT) comma and ( SHIFT) period, respectively, on most keyboards). You can think of these symbols as arrowheads pointing in the direction of the flow of information.
2. User files in a UNIX file system. c intro search restore Ann (and other users) would have to use the names in the left-hand column to refer to Dan's files; Dan (and other users) would have to use the names in the right-hand column to refer to Ann's files. b/intro project. b/restore Later in this chapter, we'll you show how to move around the file system from one directory to another (change directories). If Dan should move from his own horne directory to Ann's, then he could use the shorter names that Ann uses when she is working from her own horne directory; if Ann should move from her own horne directory to Dan's, then she could use the shorter names that Dan uses when he is working from his own home directory.

To match one of a set of characters in a filename, enclose the characters within square brackets ([ l) at the desired location in the string. To match any number of characters in a filename, use an asterisk (*) in the desired position.
