CS 23200 - Introduction to C and Unix

This course is an introduction to the C language and the Unix operating system. It presumes fluency in a high-level language. The course will focus on standard C and Unix tools, rather than a proprietary version of either. C topics include data types, the syntax for arithmetic, logical and relational functions, control functions, scope, communications with the shell, file i/o, pointers, arrays, structs, typedefs, macro and preprocessor functions, and the use of libraries and multiple source files. Unix topics include the file and directory structures, permissions, shells, standard tools such as history, sort, vi, grep, sed, tar, and make, and simple shell scripting.
