Master The Linux Operating System Today Fast and Easily!!! Linux is an open-source operating system based on Unix. It runs on a variety of devices including workstations, personal computers and mobile phones. The world's fastest supercomputers run Linux almost exclusively. The Linux kernel was developed by Linus Torvalds in 1991, as a small, fast and efficient version of Unix for personal computers. The software then incorporated multiple additions and improvements from programmers all round the globe. Right from its conception, Linux has had flexibility, a powerful feature not found in today's common operating systems like Windows and Macintosh. It provides a tailor-made experience which is the reason many believe that Linux is a more powerful operating system with no parallel. Programmers may modify the system to suit their own needs. This book goes into a detailed overview on the Linux Operating System and covers the basics of the Command Line. Here is a preview of what this book will offer: Installing Linux Using the Launcher Using the Panel, or Menu Bar Using the Dash, and accessing files Getting Started with Commands Signing in using Command Line Interface Lazarus login: Basic hacking commands Command Line Editing Movement Shortcuts: Some common shell symbols: Using the history utility in Linux Introduction to Scripts Creating User-defined Commands using Shell Scripts Filenames in Linux The File Structure System Directories Directory and file operations Command/option Function Linux Applications Administration and Security Don't wait any longer, get your copy today!

You've experienced the shiny, point-and-click surface of your Linux computer—now dive below and explore its depths with the power of the command line. The Linux Command Line takes you from your very first terminal keystrokes to writing full programs in Bash, the most popular Linux shell. Along the way you'll learn the timeless skills handed down by generations of gray-bearded, mouse-shunning gurus: file navigation, environment configuration, command chaining, pattern matching with regular expressions, and more. In addition to that practical knowledge, author William Shotts reveals the philosophy behind these tools and the rich heritage that your desktop Linux machine has inherited from Unix supercomputers of yore. As you make your way through the book's short, easily-digestible chapters, you'll learn how to: * Create and delete files, directories, and symlinks * Administer your system, including networking, package installation, and process management * Use standard input and output, redirection, and pipelines * Edit files with Vi, the world’s most popular text editor * Write shell scripts to automate common or boring tasks * Slice and dice text files with cut, paste, grep, patch, and sed Once you overcome your initial "shell shock," you'll find that the command line is a natural and expressive way to communicate with your computer. Just don't be surprised if your mouse starts to gather dust. A featured resource in the Linux Foundation's "Evolution of a SysAdmin"

Praise for the First Edition: "This outstanding book ... gives the reader robust concepts and implementable knowledge of this environment. Graphical user interface (GUI)-based users and developers do not get short shrift, despite the command-line interface’s (CLI) full-power treatment. ... Every programmer should read the introduction’s Unix/Linux philosophy section. ... This authoritative and exceptionally well-constructed book has my highest recommendation. It will repay careful and recursive study." --Computing Reviews, August 2011 Mastering Modern Linux, Second Edition retains much of the good material from the previous edition, with extensive updates and new topics added. The book provides a comprehensive and up-to-date guide to Linux concepts, usage, and programming. The text helps the reader master Linux with a well-selected set of topics, and encourages hands-on practice. The first part of the textbook covers interactive use of Linux via the Graphical User Interface (GUI) and the Command-Line Interface (CLI), including comprehensive treatment of the Gnome desktop and the Bash Shell. Using different apps, commands and filters, building pipelines, and matching patterns with regular expressions are major focuses. Next comes Bash scripting, file system structure, organization, and usage. The following chapters present networking, the Internet and the Web, data encryption, basic system admin, as well as Web hosting. The Linux Apache MySQL/MariaDB PHP (LAMP) Web hosting combination is also presented in depth. In the last part of the book, attention is turned to C-level programming. Topics covered include the C compiler, preprocessor, debugger, I/O, file manipulation, process control, inter-process communication, and networking. The book includes many examples and complete programs ready to download and run. A summary and exercises of varying degrees of difficulty can be found at the end of each chapter. A companion website (http://mml.sofpower.com) provides appendices, information updates, an example code package, and other resources for instructors, as well as students.

Unlike some operating systems, Linux doesn’t try to hide the important bits from you—it gives you full control of your computer. But to truly master Linux, you need to understand its internals, like how the system boots, how networking works, and what the kernel actually does. In this completely revised second edition of the perennial best seller How Linux Works, author Brian Ward makes the concepts behind Linux internals accessible to anyone curious about the inner workings of the operating system. Inside, you’ll find the kind of knowledge that normally comes from years of experience doing things the hard way. You’ll learn: * How Linux boots, from boot loaders to init implementations (systemd, Upstart, and System V) * How the kernel manages devices, device drivers, and processes * How networking, interfaces, firewalls, and servers work * How development tools work and relate to shared libraries * How to write effective shell scripts You’ll also explore the kernel and examine key system tasks inside user space, including system calls, input and output, and filesystems. With its combination of background, theory, real-world examples, and patient explanations, How Linux Works will teach you what you need to know to solve pesky problems and take control of your operating system.
