Knowing how to modify files at the command line is an essential skill for any Linux administrator. This learning activity will focus on using the Vim text editor to practice creating a new file, adding text to the file, and then modifying that text. We will also practice some of the basic keyboard shortcuts to change the text of this file.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
