       learn - Provides computer-aided instruction for the C shell

       learn [-directory] [subject] [lesson]

       The learn command provides computer-aided instruction courses and prac‐
       tice in the use of Tru64 UNIX.

       Allows you to exercise a script in a nonstandard place.

       To get started, enter learn; if this is the first  time	that  you  are
       invoking	 the  learn  command, you are guided through a series of ques‐
       tions to determine what type of instruction you want to receive.

       If you have used learn before and left your last session	 without  com‐
       pleting	a  subject,  the program uses information in $HOME/.learnrc to
       start you up in the same place you left off.

       To bypass questions, enter a subject or lesson.	In order  to  enter  a
       lesson, you must know the lesson number that you received in a previous
       learn command session. If you do not know the lesson number, enter  the
       lesson  number  as a subject.  The learn command searches for the first
       lesson containing the subject you specified.  If	 the  lesson  is  a  -
       (dash), learn prompts for each lesson; this is useful for debugging.

       You can specify the following subjects:

       files editor vi morefiles macros eqn C

       There  are  a few special commands.  The bye command terminates a learn
       session, and the where command tells you	 of  your  progress  (where  m
       tells  you  more.)  The again command redisplays the text of the lesson
       and again lesson lets you review lesson. The hint  command  prints  the
       last  part of the lesson script used to evaluate a response, while hint
       m prints the entire  lesson  script.   This  is	useful	for  debugging
       lessons and might possibly give you an idea about what is expected.

       To take the online lesson about files, enter: learn files

       You are then prompted for further input.

       Playpen directories.  Start-up information.

       Commands:  csh(1), ex(1)
