    58. 58. A Second Classification This Classification is based on the type of interface Operating System provides for the user to work in. Character User Interface (CUI) The User has to type the commands on the command prompt to get the work completed. Ex. DOS, UNIX. Graphical User Interface (GUI) The User need not type any commands. He/She just point and clicks on the desired Icon to get the work done. Ex. Windows (9X, XP, NT, 2000), Linux.12/21/12 Introduction to Computers 59
    59. 59. Functions of OS File Management Memory Management Process Management Device Management12/21/12 Introduction to Computers 60
    60. 60. Types of Processing Serial Processing The job is processed at the time when it is submitted. Batch Processing The similar jobs are bunched together and are kept for processing at an later time.12/21/12 Introduction to Computers 61
    61. 61. MS-DOS Overview MS-DOS is an acronym for MicroSoft Disk Operating System It is a CUI based operating system. It provides user with a command prompt (generally called as C:) where various command could be typed. When one operates in the DOS environment, one interacts with the command interpreter, which interprets the commands given by user. It provides an environment for execution of various application programs like MS-Word, MODBANKER, ISBS etc.12/21/12 Introduction to Computers 62
    62. 62. What is Command It is a string of characters which tells the computer what to do. When one types commands to a computer, one is conversing with the operating systems command interpreter. For example, to copy a file called file.txt from the 3-1/2" floppy drive to the hard drive, one could type C:> copy a:file.txt c: The word "copy" is a DOS command which causes files to be copied from one location to another12/21/12 Introduction to Computers 63
    63. 63. Entering the DOS Environment If the OS is DOS then the system will directly show prompt (C:>) If the OS is windows one must either terminate the Windows environment, or open a DOS shell within the Windows environment. Ist Method: Terminating Windows Environment Select “Restart in MS-DOS Mode” from Shut Down in Start Menu. IInd Method: Opening DOS Shell in Windows Select Start>Programs>Accessories>Command Prompt (XP) Start>Programs>Accessories>MS-DOS Prompt (98) 12/21/12 Introduction to Computers 64
    64. 64. Files and DirectoryFiles A file is a collection of Records. It is the smallest unit of File System (Storage) in a computer. Any document created using computer is a file. This document could either be a letter, any excel sheet, any image or even a database.Directory A collection of files is directory (in DOS) or folder (in Windows) It is analogous to the Office Folder which contains various documents. A directory/folder eases the management of related files/ documents, like the various circulars related to personnel could be placed in a directory called “personnel” and all the circulars related to loans could be placed in a directory called “loans”. 12/21/12 Introduction to Computers 65
    65. 65. Filenames in DOS? The filename in DOS have the following format. <name>.<ext> It has two parts the name and the extension. The name could be of 8 characters and the extension of 3 characters. The filename can contain alphabets and numbers. It cannot contain any special character other than underscore (_) and also no spaces.12/21/12 Introduction to Computers 66
    66. 66. Organization of files in DOS The DOS file system is a hierarchical file system. Files are collected into directories, and directories may contain both files and other directories. There is always a directory which is not contained by any other, called the root which is represented by the backslash character.12/21/12 Introduction to Computers 67
    67. 67. Organization of files in DOS (Contd.) Concept of Path: Every file can be specified by enumerating all of the directories between the root and it, separated by the backslash character, and appending the file name to the end. The drive which contains the root is specified at the head of the path, separated from the root by a colon (:) The hard drive is most commonly known as the C: drive, and the floppy drives are usually called A:(3-1/2 inch) and B: (5- 1/4 inch).12/21/12 Introduction to Computers 68

    69. 69. Some DOS Commandsdir: Listing of all the directories. C:> dircls: Clears the screen. C:> clscopy con: Creates a file. C:> copy con <filename> < Write your Contents Here> Press Ctrl-Z (^Z) to finish writing. Ex: C:> copy con test.dat Lets Make UCO a top class Bank. Ctrl-Z (^Z) 1 file(s) copied. (A Message will be shown on the system) This will create a file named test.dat having some data. 12/21/12 Introduction to Computers 70
    70. 70. Some DOS Commands (Contd.)edit: Edits a file. C:> edit <filename> This will open a editor window where the contents of file can be seen. These contents could also be edited here and on saving, the contents of file will change.type: Displays the content of a file. C:> type <filename> This will display the contents of file on the computer. The contents of file could only be viewed but could not be changed, as in the case of edit. 12/21/12 Introduction to Computers 71
    71. 71. Some DOS Commands (Contd.)md: Make Directory. C:> md (directory name> This will create a directory with the specified Change Directory. C:> cd (directory name> This will change the directory from current directory to the specified directory.rd: Remove Directory. C:> rd (directory name> If the directory is needed to be removed permanently from the computer, use this command. For this command to be executed it is necessary that the directory should be empty and user should be on a directory above it. 12/21/12 Introduction to Computers 72
    72. 72. Some DOS Commands (Contd.)copy: Copies a file. C:> copy <source> <destination> This will copy the file from the source location to the specified destination. The command creates a copy of the file on the destination i.e. the file would be found on both the location.move: Moves a file. C:> move <source> <destination> This will move the file from the source location to the specified destination. The file from the source location would be removed and would be moved to the destination. 12/21/12 Introduction to Computers 73
    73. 73. Some DOS Commands (Contd.)ren: Renames a file. C:> ren <old filename> <new filename> This will change the name (rename) of the file to a new name as specified.del: Deletes a file. C:> del <filename> This will delete the file permanently from the system. 12/21/12 Introduction to Computers 74
    74. 74. Overview of Windows  Windows is an GUI based operating system.  It is also developed by Microsoft Corporation, which is headed by Mr. Bill Gates.  Over the years the Microsoft have evolved various versions of Windows. Win95, Win98, Win2000, Win ME, Win NT, Win XP.  It gives user a handy environment where he doesn’t have to remember and learn the syntaxes of various commands as is the case in DOS.  The user can just point and click on the Icons provided to him on the screen.12/21/12 Introduction to Computers 75
    75. 75. Folders and Documents Folders are a way to organize your documents within drives in Windows as are the directories in DOS. A document is each thing that you create on a computer. A document can be made using any type of software. 12/21/12 Introduction to Computers 76
