Raspberry Pi Linux LESSON 4: Creating and Editing Text Files Using Nano Command

As we learn more about the Raspberry Pi, we will get to the point that we will need to write programs. We have learned how to write python programs in our earlier tutorial series on the Arduino. Good news is that we can apply what we learned there to the Raspberry Pi. But, we will first have to learn how to create and edit text files. The text editor we will use on the Raspberry Pi is called “nano”. We will learn how to use nano by creating and editing simple text files. Also in this lesson we learn how to make new directories in Linux using the mkdir command. We also learn that we can view a file without opening it by using the “cat” command.

Watch the video above for all this information. These concepts are best taught and learned by watching and doing. So, watch the video and do the commands along with me. You will be an expert in no time!

  1. I would give you a thumbs up, but I’m clueless as to how I do that. Maybe it’s because I live (notice I said Live, not own) with 6 cats. With that said; do you still want a thumbs up from me seeing as I am a cat person? I too believe that they would eat me if given half a chance. Thanks for these lesson on the Raspberry and the Bible lessons. Thumbs up for both

  2. Outstanding instruction, very clear and understandable. It has been a very long time since i have used Linux or Dos command line interface, I will be taking the rest of your courses on the Raspberry Pi. Outstanding!
