To create such a file, you have to use an editor (a word processor
will also do provided that you save your work as plain ASCII text).
On Linux, there are several simple, intuitive editors (under Editors
or Applications or Accessories Text Editors
on the ``start" menu).
In particular, on most Linux/Unix systems one can find
the editor called ``pico" which
works the same way as typical PC editors. To perform this task enter:
... enter any text you wish, moving around with the arrow keys ...
Yes to finish. If you want to get a feel of the true Unix, use the vi editor available under all flavors of Unix and Linux (there exists even a version for MS Windows and, believe it or not, there are people using it). Example of the session is as follows. Enter:
Press ``i" and type:
Press ``Esc" key and type:
followed by ``Enter".
The same line will also work with other Unix computers which are print servers (if lp does not work, try lpr).
