Handy Guide to Command Line (CLI) for Beginners

Post by rhodry »

In a galaxy far far away........, I mean whist in another forum, I had occasion to remind myself of this very useful guide to the Linux Command Line Interface (CLI). This is not about advocacy of cli vs gui - I just thought for those newbies, particularly, that do want to understand a little better just how "the underpinnings" of Linux works, this is a very handy guide.

There is a link on the page where you can download a free version as a pdf file for permanent refernce on your system.

http://www.linuxcommand.org/tlcl.php

hope it helps,
rhodry.

I wonder just how much of that is still useful considering how old this post is???...Its even before systemd CLIs that are being used now...What you have downloaded is now "ancient" history...DAMIEN

Hi blueicetwice,

Please let threads older than 6 months rest in eternal peace. :wink:

Your enthusiasm is wonderful to see, but we don't like reviving old threads here.
