Some of these, such as cd and echo, do not generate a process, and are directly executed by the shell. These commands are built into the shell and do not exist as separate files. External commands External commands are Unix utilities and programs such as cat and ls. These commands exist in the form of individual files and are distributed in different directories. The commonly used user commands are placed in the /bin directory, and the commands that are usually used only by system administrators are placed in the /etc directory.

When these swapped processes are ready to run, they are loaded back to the memory. Users cannot access this file system directly. 3 ACCESSING FILE SYSTEMS Let us assume we have a device such as a floppy or CD containing a few files, and we want to view and access those files. The files on these devices make up an individual file system with its root as ‘/’. The file system on these devices will not be accessible by the Unix system unless it is mounted. Mounting a file system means assigning the root directory of the new file system to a subdirectory of the root directory of our Unix system.

The disk space allotted to a Unix file system is made up of blocks, each of which is typically 512 bytes in size. Some file systems may have blocks of 1024 or 2048 bytes. , one logical block contains two physical blocks). ■ SUMMARY 1. In the Unix operating system, there are three types of files: ordinary files, directory files, and device files. Ordinary files are also referred to as regular files, and they may contain printable characters. 2. The device files are of two types—character device files and block device files.
