I want to learn how to express the code that works in the terminal. Where do I start?

Thank you (gulp).

It helps when you realize, that it's not "the terminal" that does all that magic.

It's simply a huge collection of installed terminal applications, that don't have a GUI and can only be used by means of terminal commands. But they're just applications, which can be installed or removed. :)

I feel my dangerous factor reducing significantly as my bookmark toolbar fills rapidly and I start getting my 'Linux-fu' on! :mrgreen:
