Linux in a Nutshell: A Desktop Quick Reference
O'Reilly, 1999 - Linux - 612 pages
Linux in a Nutshellcovers the core commands available on common Linux distributions. This isn't a scaled-down quick reference of common commands, but a complete reference containing all user, programming, administration, and networking commands.
This book also documents a wide range of GNU tools for UNIX users who have GNU versions of standard UNIX tools. You'll find all the essential commands you need to run your system, as well as all the commands that historically have been included on UNIX systems.
New material in the second edition includes the popular LILO and Loadlin programs used for dual-booting, a Perl quick-reference, and RCS/CVS source control commands.
