Recommended Posts

Hi.... I'm karl. I'm working in unix for first time so i'm new to it. Right now, i'm using Ubuntu 10.04(lucid lynx).

I need help in opening, reading and writing files(Ascii or text). I want to seperate the contents of the original file in different files. Plz help

Linux doesn't have "opening" files as such - it has applications (like gedit) that can open a file for editing, or "more" that can open a file for viewing.

 

As anyweb mentioned, if you just want to browse and edit a plain-text file, any graphical editor ought to do it. Look under Applications>Editors, or if you use the "Places" menu to browse to a directory, right-clicking the file should bring up an "Open in" menu that permits a choice of installed application.
