I've been reading online and doing some reading on the man pages for the command chmod and I'm curious about being able to properly execute a command.

With the terminal, if I enter a command such as; sudo apt-get remove bleachbit , using bleachbit as an example of an application I could remove my question is this.

How do I properly format a given command in the terminal or at least have an understanding of how the commands are broken down.

Sudo being super user do, then; apt-get I think having something specifically to do with Debian and finally remove; being the command and specific instruction for finally the software bleachbit I want to in this case remove.

Is their a method behind how to remember or a proper way to format commands ..


At the minute I'm looking in too and trying to learn the file and folder permissions and how to change things in the CLI and on a root level and hence I'm curious to know when I'm changing folder and file permissions how to not only go about it but also still learning the basics about permissions.
