Phase One Insert your RED diskette into the A: drive bay.
Then create the following directories on your RED diskette by entering and executing the below commands. Enter the commands exactly as shown:

C:\> A: {return}

A:\> MD OTHER{return}

A:\> MD CIS170{return}

A:\> CD CIS170{return}

A:\CIS170> MD PROJ2{return}

A:\CIS170> MD PROJ3{return}

A:\CIS170> MD PROJ4{return}

A:\CIS170> MD PROJ5{return}

Phase Two

Ensure that all the directories were created, by issuing the following command: A:\CIS170> TREE A:\ {return} This command may not work if you are using a version of Windows 95 which does not support the Tree command. If you try it and it does not work do not worry just continue on with the rest of the project.
 
 
Phase Three Create a text file in which all of your grades for this course can be recorded. Please use the DOS text editor (Edit) for this purpose.

Use the following commands:

A:\CIS170> edit grades.txt {return} This will launch the DOS text editor and create an empty text file named grades.txt. When you see the blue screen and the menu across the top, your in the text editer. At this point enter in the text below.

Last Name, First Name

P1{return}

P2{return}

P3{return}

    1. Click on the word FILE on the menu,
    2. Click on the word SAVE to save the contents of the file,
    3. Click on the word FILE on the menu,
    4. Click on the word EXIT to exit out of the DOS editor.
To verify that the file and its contents are complete, issue the following command: A:\CIS170> TYPE GRADES.TXT{return}

Phase Four

Change to the directory for Project 1 A:\CIS170>CD PROJ1{return} Create the text file for Project 1 as described in the syllabus. Please use the DOS text editor (Edit) for this purpose. Remember to address all 3 topics. Also be sure that you give the file its appropriate name, and save it in the proper subdirectory.

To use the DOS text editor (Edit) to create your Project 1 text file, use the following commands:

A:\CIS170\PROJ1> edit proj1.txt {return} This will launch the DOS text editor and create an empty text file named proj1.txt. At this point refer to your syllabus as to the content for your project text file. To exit out of the DOS Editor:
    1. Click on the word FILE on the menu,
    2. Click on the word SAVE to save the contents of the file,
    3. Click on the word FILE on the menu

A:\CIS170\PROJ1> TYPE PROJ1.TXT{return}
