Présentation de l'éditeur
UNIX for OpenVMS Users, 3E, makes it easy to see what OpenVMS and UNIX have in common, and to transfer your knowledge and experience in OpenVMS over to the world of UNIX.
Since most shops rely on more than one operating system, it is critical for system administrators and managers to understand the similarities and differences between platforms, so they can easily work in both environments while taking full advantage of the tools and applications available on each. This book offers OpenVMS professionals a concise source of information, so that they can quickly bring their expertise to bear on UNIX file management, e-mail, networking, and security.
This new edition of the book is enhanced with updated references to VMS, incorporates suggestions made by readers of previous editions, and particularly, recognizes other UNIX implementations in addition to HP's Tru64.
· Includes extensive additions to the sections on VMS logical names, on the emacs editor, and on shell programming and Perl
· Describes the interfaces common to both operating systems, with appendices covering command and editor summaries
· Adds emphasis on Linux
UNIX for OpenVMS Users, Second Edition, is for users who are making the transition from OpenVMS to UNIX and provides a comprehensive comparison of commands and utilities. Starting from a working knowledge of OpenVMS, it takes an average user to a comparable knowledge of UNIX. It bridges the gap between OpenVMS and UNIX by explaining things in OpenVMS terms.
The book begins with a tutorial discussing the concepts needed when working with UNIX and the common shell programs. Working into practical examples, the book shows simple daily tasks that map one-for-one from OpenVMS to UNIX. These include system access, file manipulation, text editing and mail. The examples provide commands that are as equivalent as possible, and point out subtle differences.
Recent releases of OpenVMS and UNIX have added interfaces that are exactly the same between the operating systems, particularly POSIX and CDE. UNIX for OpenVMS Users, describes these interfaces briefly, mainly to reassure users how easy it can be to switch between the operating systems.
