4.35. How do I make a plan file?

This will work on UNIX systems and its variants. You can also create a file called .project in a similar manner, but this can only be one line. The project line will also be displayed when you're fingered.

1. Go to your home directory by typing cd.

2. Create and edit a file called .plan and fill it with good stuff by typing vi .plan (you can use your favorite text editor in place of vi).

3. Make .plan readable by everyone by typing chmod a+r .plan.

4. Make your home directory searchable by everyone by typing chmod +x . (don't forget the period on the end.)
