Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
There must be thousands of UNIX commands. Their sheer number befuddle even the most adventurous computer users. The authors present a useful solution to this dilemma by putting together a collection of frequently used UNIX commands in one handy place. The commands are categorized into eight groups-general purpose, file manipulation, text editing, printing, communication, system administration, shell, and the ever-important ftp (file transfer protocal). Once you've digested this organization scheme and understand where you're most likely to find an explanation for a command, this book becomes a breeze to use. For those who have moved beyond a UNIX-induced catatonic terror, this will become a well-thumbed tome.
