Practical exercise

This exercise explores the SELECT command.

  1. First, make a copy of TEST1.TXT with the VMS command


    then edit TEST2.TXT

  2. Create 10 copies of the text as separate paragraphs. Use the PREV SCREEN and NEXT SCREEN keys to scroll through the file.

  3. In the first paragraph, change all the occurrences ``is'' to ``was''. Then change ``DEC'' to ``VMS'' throughout the file.

  4. In the second paragraph, put a copy of the first sentence at the end of the paragraph.

  5. Swap the first and second paragraphs.

  6. Finally, to identify the file later, insert ``This is test 2'' at the top of the file.

  7. Exit EVE.
