    Hey nishant1234,

    Firstly, man is a command that will tell you about other commands.

    Usage

    Code:
    man cp
    man ls
    etc.

    Secondly, here's a good intro to Ubuntu commands: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UsingTheTerminal

    Thirdly, commands that are pretty useful:
    * apt-get for installing/removing packages (also apt-cache for searching for packages)
    * grep for searching regular expressions. I usually use this for finding something in long outputs, ie ps aux | grep foo will give me processes that are relevant to foo.
    * cat for looking at short text files, less for looking at longer text files.
    * scp for file transfer between computers. It's secure (goes over ssh).
