Beginning the Linux Command Line (Paperback)

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 GUIs. 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

  • Shell programming
  • Managing partitions and file systems
  • Configuring access to hardware devices

Everyone who uses Linux. No exceptions.
