Linux in a Nutshell covers the core commands available on common Linux distributions. This isn't a scaled-down quick reference of common commands, but a complete reference containing all user, programming, administration, and networking commands.

Contents include:

  • Commands with complete lists of options
  • Shell syntax for the bash, csh, and tcsh shells
  • Pattern matching
  • emacs, vi, and ex editing commands
  • sed and gawk commands
  • Software development commands

This book also documents a wide range of GNU tools for UNIX users who have GNU versions of standard UNIX tools. You'll find all the essential commands you need to run your system, as well as all the commands that historically have been included on UNIX systems. Specialized packages included in most distributions of Linux are not covered.

Linux in a Nutshell is a must for any Linux user; it weighs less than a stack of manual pages, but gives you everything you need for common, day-to-day use.

User Review  - Darren - Goodreads

Windows 8 is so awful it's making me think of linux again. It's been a few years now since I've ran linux, and so this is a handy reference to have on the kindle. Read full review
