Student Studies

Dear All

I have been asked to put a small lesson together for some degree level students who want to explore the use of CLI environments.

I have created a few small exercises for the students to perform with exactly the same outcomes on both Linux and Windows CLI's, I have though hit my first hurdle and was wondering if anyone can advise a good solution.

On windows I have asked the students to perform the following command:

c:\> edit %USERNAME%.txt

Which will create the text document as the users name.

I have tried the following under Linux

Logname > $.txt

But of course am missing something.

Any ideas most welcome
