Giving OS commands


I am aware that you can pass OS commands (to Linux) while working in another application, such as a database. How is this done? Do you place an "!" before the command or something else?

Thanks

If you mean CLI (command-line interface), just click on the icon that looks like a monitor screen with a scallop shell superimposed to open a terminal window, then enter the command you want to execute. This is definitely NOT like windoze and the dos window. In Linux, they are part of the same operating system. You usually have the choice of command-line or GUI execution.
