    Re: Linux Command Line Learning Resources

    @cortman

    One little-known book is "Linux for System Administrators (with Notes on Linux Installation)" -- it was written April 2005 by a Seattle community college professor. I took his course, and "the book" (a printed packet about a third of an inch thick) is the one I use most often for reference. It's located, in total, for free at its permalink - http://168.156.125.36/The_Book.html

    A great deal of the book is involved with administration of a linux install from the command-line. It has some discussion about the different shells and the difference in commands, but almost all the commands are geared toward bash.

    I don't think this has been posted yet, but feel free to yell at me if it has.

    http://www.grymoire.com/Unix/

    Has a load of tutorials on various things, my personal favourites being the ones on grep, sed, and awk. And regular expressions, of course.

    Very helpful list of links. One aspect of working with the gnome-terminal that I found helpful was figuring out how to skip around text with the keyboard. It's almost definitely covered somewhere in the list, but I found the information somewhat buried when I searched for it, so I can make a really superficial list.

    Moving Cursor & Text Manipulation

    Left (word length): Ctrl + Left Arrow
    Right (word length): Ctrl + Right Arrow
    Left (character): Right Arrow, or Ctrl + B
    Right (character): Left Arrow, or Ctrl + F
    Skip to Beginning: Home, Ctrl + A
    Skip to End (of line): End, Ctrl + E
    Delete line from left of cursor: Ctrl + U
    Delete line from after cursor: Ctrl + K
    Delete word before cursor: Ctrl + W

    Other shortcuts:
    Enter command: (Enter, of course), Ctrl + J, Ctrl + N, Ctrl + I
    Enter previous command (from history): Ctrl + P

    Most of these were found by experimentation, I can't guarantee they'll all work, but they should.

    ^ this for sure. Especially the Ctrl+ movements. Those become way faster and more natural than the arrow keys, if you use them a little bit.

    And thanks to all for your suggestions- I was forum-less over the weekends, but I have updated the index now.

    Does anyone know of a wiki page this could be added to? Or perhaps a new page entirely, if it doesn't exist.
