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.
- 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 http://www.tdlp.org/, is an excellent and free resource for many things Linux.
