Moving to More Advanced Uses of the Command Line

There are a great number of good books out there for working the command line. In addition, because most of the command line has not changed in many years, a large body of information is available on the Internet. If you need help with something, often simply searching for the command will turn up what you need.

To get you started, here are some recommendations.

  • A Practical Guide to Linux® Commands, Editors, and Shell Programming by Mark G. Sobell (Prentice Hall, 2005) is a good book for any user of the shell in Linux to have on his or her bookshelf.
  • LinuxCommand.org, found at http://linuxcommand.org/, is an excellent Web site designed to help people new to using the command line.
  • The Linux Documentation Project, found at www.tdlp.org/, is an excellent and free resource for many things Linux.
