The Linux Command Line
Websitegd.tuwien.ac.at/linuxcommand.org
AuthorWilliam D. Shotts, Jnr
FormatPDF
Pages522
This book is a broad overview of 'living' on the Linux command line. Unlike some books that concentrate on just a single program, such as the shell, bash, this book will try to convey how to get along with the command line interface in a larger sense. How does it all work? What can it do? What's the best way to use it?
The book is divided into the following parts:
  • Learning The Shell starts the exploration of the basic language of the command line including such things as the structure of commands, file system navigation, command line editing, and finding help and documentation for commands
  • Configuration And The Environment covers editing configuration files that control the computer's operation from the command line
  • Common Tasks And Essential Tools explores many of the ordinary tasks that are commonly performed from the command line. Unix-like operating systems, such as Linux, contain many 'classic' command line programs that are used to perform powerful operations on data
  • Writing Shell Scripts introduces shell programming, an admittedly rudimentary, but easy to learn, technique for automating many common computing tasks. By learning shell programming, you will become familiar with concepts that can be applied to many other programming languages
