Do the following:
- Sign up for a Github username
- Open a terminal. On Mac OS X, this will be a program called Terminal in your Applications/Utilities folder. On Windows, you will likely need to download and set up a third-party program such as PuTTY. On Linux, this will be the GNOME Terminal or KDE Konsole, or the equivalent.
- At the command line within the terminal emulator, connect to the cl.linguistics.illinois.edu server using ssh. Your username is your NetID, and your password should be your NetID password. Note: to connect to the server from off campus, you may first need to connect to the campus network using an approved VPN client.
- At the command line on the cl.linguistics.illinois.edu server, use the vi text editor to open the file ~/.who_am_I
- Use cat to verify that you have successfully saved your changes to .who_am_I
cat ~/.who_am_I | tail -n 1 | cut -f 2
cat ~/.who_am_I | tail -n 1 | cut -f 1
- Use cat, tail, cut, and pipes to verify that you have successfully recorded your github username in .who_am_I
cat ~/.who_am_I | tail -n 1 | cut -f 4
- Use cat, tail, cut, and pipes to verify that your NetID is still correctly recorded your in .who_am_I
cat ~/.who_am_I | tail -n 1 | cut -f 3
- Disconnect from the server
