For those of you new to Linux here you will find command line programs and their uses.

Some of us old timers might even find a helpful tip or two.

 

 

This document is a collection of Unix/Linux/BSD commands and tasks which are useful for IT work or for advanced users.

This is a practical guide with concise explanations, however the reader is supposed to know what s/he is doing.

"#" is shorthand for "sudo" to use these commands, correct?

No, most of those commands can be run as a normal user.

You will get an error if root (sudo) is required.

That's nice raw, thanks!  Really surprised at how similar Linux and Windows is, rm, dir, mk, etc.

The pound sign ( # ) is the default prompt in the BASH or sh shell.  On most Linux systems you don't get that because there are init scripts over in /etc/profile.d that wind up colourizing everything (something that annoys the heck out of me).

 

#6:  Linux uses the standard Unix command names, Unix was around before MS DOS, so MS was proving "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery".

 

The commands called out as FreeBSD are directly applicable to any other version of the *BSDs you run across.

The "csup" in the FreeBSD building the kernel section has is obsolete now.  Subversion is the most common way now. And for anyone that's never done it, there is always sweaty palms when you go to hit enter on "make installworld".

 

As others have said, OP nice find.


FreeBSD since 3.3, only time I touch Windows is to fix my wife's computer
