Using a virtual machine could help.
The Centre for eResearch is offering a 1-hour online workshop and practical session to enable University of Auckland researchers to use Nectar Research Cloud (virtual machines).
This session is ideal for those considering or starting to use Nectar Research Cloud, presenters will provide practical instruction on getting an allocation and setting up a Windows virtual machine.
Please register with your University of Auckland email address.
regular expressions: grep, wildcards
sed: stream editing with regular expressions
awk: handling formatted data - either data files or output of bash commands.
We'll illustrate using these at the command line and as part of bash scripts. Book here
What do we mean by computer scripts?
If you have a collection of commands you'd like to run together, you can combine them in a script and run them all at once. You can also pass arguments to the script so that it can operate on different files or other input. A script is a handy way to:
• Save yourself typing on a group of commands you often run together.
• Remember complicated commands, so you don't have to look up, or risk forgetting, the particular syntax each time you use it.
• Use control structures, like loops and case statements, to allow your scripts to do complex jobs. Writing these structures into a script can make them more convenient to type and easier to read.
This session is open to students and researchers from all domains and will build upon the content covered in the introduction to Linux command-line session happening online on 23 Nov. Book here
