Getting Help on the Command Line
This section provides you with some tips for getting help on the command line. The commands —help and man are the two most important tools at the command line.
- Arrow keys: Move up and down the man file by using the arrow keys.
- q: Quit back to the command prompt by typing q.
- man man: man man brings up the manual entry for the man command, which is a good place to start!
- man intro: man intro is especially useful. It displays the Introduction to User Commands, which is a well-written, fairly brief introduction to the Linux command line.
