Data Set Information:

This file contains 9 sets of sanitized user data drawn from the
command histories of 8 UNIX computer users at Purdue over the course
of up to 2 years (USER0 and USER1 were generated by the same person,
working on different platforms and different projects). The data is
drawn from tcsh(1) history files and has been parsed and sanitized to
remove filenames, user names, directory structures, web addresses,
host names, and other possibly identifying items. Command names,
flags, and shell metacharacters have been preserved. Additionally,
**SOF** and **EOF** tokens have been inserted at the start and end of
shell sessions, respectively. Sessions are concatenated by date order
and tokens appear in the order issued within the shell session, but no
timestamps are included in this data. For example, the two sessions:


# Start session 1
cd ~/private/docs
ls -laF | more
cat foo.txt bar.txt zorch.txt > somewhere
exit
# End session 1

# Start session 2
cd ~/games/
xquake &
fg
vi scores.txt
mailx john_doe '@' somewhere.com
exit
# End session 2

would be represented by the token stream

**SOF**
cd
<1> # one "file name" argument
ls
-laF
|
more
cat
<3> # three "file" arguments
>
<1>
exit
**EOF**
**SOF**
cd
<1>
xquake
&
fg
vi
<1>
mailx
<1>
exit
**EOF**
