Beginning the Linux Command Line by Sander van Vugt

This is Linux for those of us who don’t mind typing. All Linux users and administrators tend to like the flexibility and speed of Linux administration from the command line in byte–sized chunks, instead of fairly standard graphical user interfaces. Beginning the Linux Command Line follows a task–oriented approach and is distribution-agnostic.

  • Work with files and directories.
  • Administer users and security.
  • Understand how Linux is organized.

What you’ll learn

  • Finding help from in–system resources
  • Finding the right command for the task you have to accomplish
  • Working with text editors and intelligent filters
  • Shell programming
  • Managing partitions and file systems
  • Configuring access to hardware devices

Who this book is for

Everyone who uses Linux. No exceptions.

This book was used as the text in a beginning Linux class I took. It covers administration of RedHat, SUSE, and Ubuntu systems. The book is written in a clear, concise language. I use it now as a reference book for when I am trying to do something in Linux and need a little refresher.
