This is a completely new interface in which, instead of using menus, each Ceilidh facility is represented by a UNIX command. It can be used on any terminal. Because there are no menus in this system, it is recommended that you use it only after some experience of the menu system.
To use this facility, there are two things you must do. First execute
to set up an appropriate environment. You will need to check with your teacher just where the ~ceilidh directory is on the machine. This needs to be done once only (unless at a later stage you wish to reset your environment).
In order to use these commands, the directory containing them must be included in your PATH variable. To do this, type
at the start of each logged-on session during which you wish to use Ceilidh.
From here on, type
to get a list of Ceilidh commands currently available, or
to show the currently set course, unit and exercise. The commands follow generally the pattern of the menu commands, but a few have had to be renamed to avoid clashes with existing commands. A typical starting sequence might be
