Now do the practice exercises associated with the tutorial except, instead of parts (13), (14), and (15) to print the file OUTLAB3, email the file to your bulldog.unca.edu account.

Part 2 -- printing files

Login to bulldog.unca.edu and read the file you mailed to yourself in part 1 of the assignment. Now print the file to the line printer rbh006 in Robinson Hall 006.
