This guide to every Linux command cuts through the voluminous Linux documentation to help you find the Linux commands you need when you need them.A well-organized, essential reference for Linux users, programmers, and system administrators, this concise reference provides instant access to all Linux commands from a variety of angles. If you know what type of command you want, you can go to the listing of commands by type and browse through the possibilities. If you know a DOS command and want the Linux equivalent, you can go to the Linux/DOS cross-reference. If you have a general idea of what the cammand does but dont know the specific name, you can go to a listing of commands in plain English. In addition, an alphabetic cross-reference exists for those rare times when you know exactly what Linux command you need to use. And, although the book is part of the MIS: Press Slackware Series, it covers all major Linux distributions, including Slackware Linux, Red Hat Linux, and Caldera.
