The Linux Command Line: A Complete Introduction, 2nd Edition by William E. Shotts
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 2.0 MB
Overview: You’ve experienced the shiny, point-and-click surface of your Linux computer-now dive below and explore its depths with the power of the command line.
The Linux Command Line takes you from your very first terminal keystrokes to writing full programs in Bash, the most popular Linux shell (or command line). Along the way you’ll learn the timeless skills handed down by generations of experienced, mouse-shunning gurus: file navigation, environment configuration, command chaining, pattern matching with regular expressions, and more.
In addition to that practical knowledge, author William Shotts reveals the philosophy behind these tools and the rich heritage that your desktop Linux machine has inherited from Unix supercomputers of yore.
