    Use pipes to direct the output of one command to the input of another command
    Use the output of one command as arguments to another command
    Use tee or redirection to send the output of a single command to the standard output, or stdout, and a file
    Use vi to open or create a document and move around within the document without using a gui interface
  • Use the basic vi modes to insert, add, and delete characters from a document as well as add lines to the document
    Use the vi commands to exit, cancel changes, and save changes to a document
    Use advanced features of vi to copy, paste, substitute, and move characters or lines within a document
