Join Scott Simpson for an in-depth discussion in this video Exercise files and environment, part of Linux: Multitasking at the Command Line.
- [Narrator] In this course, I have two CentOS machines set up on the same network and I'll mostly be working on one called local machine. Occasionally, I'll be connecting to my server, which is named distance server for my client with SSH. The distro of Linux you're using doesn't really matter. All you need to follow along with this course is a Linux machine to which you have local or SSH access. You could use a VM connected to your network or with ports open to your host machine, or you could use a server running on the Internet or in your basement or wherever.
I expect that you're already at least a little bit familiar with working at the command line. If you're not, check out Learn the Linux Command Line: The Basics. In this course, I'll be using a few different files. If you don't have access to the files, don't worry. The scrips are easy to copy down and the other files I'll use are generated with commands I'll show you.
- Starting tasks in the background
- Controlling more than one process
- Managing virtual terminals with the screen utility
