Here is a selection of command-line tips that I've found useful when working on Linux. The emphasis is on somewhat less-known techniques that are generally important or useful to technical users. It's a bit long, and users certainly don't need to know all of them, but I've done my best to review that each item is worth reading in terms of projected time savings, if you use Linux heavily. To get more information on a command mentioned, first try "man <command name>". In some cases, you must install a package for this to work -- try aptitude or yum. If that fails, Google it......

Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain." -George Orwell, 1984

Nice bunch of tips, SB. But so many that if I try to remember all, my brain asplody!  wacko.gif
I tend to just look on the interwebz for commands I need if I don't know them, when I need them. I also just use GUI a lot.

Next I'm going to find out that this bunny is some sort or underworld identity tool used by gay anonymous black hat hackers to recognize one another online. Myeh... what the hey. I'm not gay, though. I could be other things.  ph34r.gif

You have a cat at home and you just adopted a bunny in your sig.  You could be accused of being one of these.
