You´ve experienced the shiny, point-and-click surface of your Linux computer – now dive below and explore its depths with the power of the command line.

The Linux Command Line thakes you from your very first terminal keystrokes to writing full programs in Bash, the most popular Linux shell. Along the way you´ll learn the timeless skills handed down by generations of gray-bearded, mouse-shunning gurus: file navigation, environment configeration, command chaining, pattern matching with regular expressions, and more.

In addition to that practical knowledge, author William Shotts revels the philosophy behind these tools and the rich heritage that your desktop Linux machine has inherited from Unix supercomputers of yore.

As you make your way through the book´s short, easily digestible chapters, you´ll learn how to:
- Create and delete files, directories, and symlinks
- Administer your system, including networking, package installation, and process management
- Use standard input and output, redirection, and pipelines
- Edit files with Vi, the world´s most popular text editor
- Write shell scripts to automate common or boring tasks
-Slice and dice text files with cut, past, grep, patch, and sed

Once you overcome your initial "shell shock", you´ll find that the command line is a natural and expressive way to communicate with your computer. Just don´t be suprised if your mouse starts to gather dust.

"Anyone who reads this book and makes use of the examples provided will not be able to avoid becoming a Unix command line pro by the time they've hit the end of the book. It provides an excellent introduction to the command line that takes students from knowing nearly nothing to using impressively sophisticated commands."
