Seeking a Command Cheat Sheet

Postby Dtohjam » 2006-01-21 06:53

Hi, like other, I'm new to linux and have just installed Woody.
I plan to use the box to be the home server. I'd appreciate a 'cheat sheet' (2 to 10 pages) or some handy reference guide to the linux commands, options and opperands.
A web link would be easiest.. Can anyone assist. Thanks.

Try here for lots of commands and basic information explained:

http://www.cse.iitb.ac.in/~ajitb/webpage/linucom.htm

Here's some in PDF format:

Here's a shorter list of Bash commands with less wording. Might be useful:
http://www.ss64.com/bash/

On a side note, I don't see why or how you would choose to run Woody over the latest stable release, Sarge. It is recommended to run the latest stable release version, unless you have your reasons.

LinuxCommand.com is an excellent site. Very clear and clean. It also has nicely formated man pages.
There is a link for downloading the entire site for off-line use.

Also your command line has a histroy, just use your arrow key to run through the last commands you issued, often times you can find one you used just modify it and use it again.

At any rate it'll help you remimber.

muskrat is right, and you can also view history like this:
Code: Select all
history

or to scroll commands use
Code: Select all
history | less

if less command isn't installed you can try
Code: Select all
history | more

which is installed by default.

It's not a cheat sheet but i've found O'Reilly's Linux in a Nutshell very useful.

Link: http://www.amazon.ca/exec/obidos/ASIN/0 ... 96-4721668

It lives on my desk

Ya, Nutshell is a very good book. I also really like Linux Pocket Guide by Barrett. It is very good for looking up things quickly and easily. Also for the price you cant go wrong.
