    The only way to prevent duplicates is if you (or a mod) maintain a master index in the first post of this thread. That's how the other sticky threads are maintained AFAIK.

    I guess the mods probably have plenty to do besides. I can try and maintain a master index. Thanks for the idea.

    I know you said online resources cortman, but I thought that I'd add a couple of books I bought when I was starting out. I learn best from physical books, so for anyone else like me;
    Phyiscal books are great too! I'll include a section in the index for them.

    Re: Linux Command Line Learning Resources

    To be honest if you are looking for good books about using the command line... a physical book the author Mark G Sobell..... His books are all for beginners... but go into detail.... i think using his books for reading material while using the online books for practical reference you will learn alot faster and get best of both worlds....

    its good to see were talking about how to teach other people the Linux command line.... Thats definetly Ubuntu spirit

    Re: Linux Command Line Learning Resources

    I have like the 2nd edition of Linux in a nutshell, which is very helpful, also explains some of the older/unused shell conventions which I might come across.

    It's up to a much more modern edition now, but I daresay it's still as good.

    http://wiki.bash-hackers.org/ is also a good resource to learn more about Bash scripting. They have a List of Bash online-tutorials with overviews and recommendations.

    A further idea, would it help to add a second column to the master index, in addition to linking to the book or resource use the second column to link to the post that introduced the item, because those posts often contain brief introductory comments about the item or comparative comments about other resources.

    I imagine an awful lot has been written about the CLI and I think this thread will continue to grow for a while.

    My personal suggestions for something to add to the list:
    Command-line interface
    ( From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia )

    Wikipedia is

    • open source and free
    • written for understanding without specialist knowledge
    • contains links to similar topics, both internal and external links
    • the linked item is an introductory item explaining the basics and history of Command Line Interfaces

    And the handy
    Debian Reference Card (Previously known as Quick Reference)


    • a simple short summary primarily as an English pdf
    • ( Ubuntu is of course Debian based )
    • from here with related documents in other formats and languages


    Thanks,
    John

    An old fashioned newbie interested in and wanting to learn more about the CLI

    Re: Linux Command Line Learning Resources

    Thanks for everyone's contributions! I'm trying to quietly update the index periodically with all the new sites, books, and PDFs. I'm thinking this will be a good resource.

    I can see that being handy. I'll see what I can do.

    Doesn't need to be a column, could be a simple as the post number. Here's an example of what master index would look like for links from post #4:

    LINUX: Rute User’s Tutorial and Exposition by Paul Sheer #4
    The Linux Users' Guide by Larry Greenfield #4
    LinuxCommand.org: Learn the Linux command line. Write shell scripts. #4

    Ok, basic question: How do you link to a specific post?

    Otherwise I may just give the post number and forget the links.
