linux has a long history of making available cheat sheets for their command line based programs. Basically it's (meant to be) a single sheet of paper with the most common/useful commands and parameters. Including usually a ton of useful tricks you don't know by heart. (eg how to jump to the beginning of a line in command line, delete the last word, etc)

As I was looking for several this morning, I figured I'd share the ones I finally printed out. They're really cheat sheets with the exception of zsh where the shortest cheat sheet I could find was 7 pages long. :rofl:

bash/zsh cheat sheet:

zsh cheat sheet:

vi cheat sheet:

I figured those might be useful to others as well. If you have more of those, feel free to add them. :)


is that a bird?  a plane? nooo it's the flying blueberry!

The vi one is fantastic! I use vi pretty much every day at work so that cheat sheet will probably come in handy!
