After running through this tutorial, you should have the basic knowledge to navigate a UNIX file system from the command line and work with files and directories. You should experiment with the commands listed throughout this text and closely examine the man page for any item you wish to learn more about.
Future tutorials in the series will cover specific applications (
vi, for instance) in detail and cover
shell tricks and tips. In the meantime, feel free to experiment with a
test user; in short order, you'll likely find yourself whizzing
through command-line options faster than you could imagine pointing
and clicking with your mouse!
