The cd command changes directories, cp duplicates files or directories, and tar quickly groups files into an archive. You'll also learn how to deal with file permissions and perform simple input/output.

These situations include base conversion from one string to another (decimal to hex, hex to decimal, decimal to octal, and so on), reading the keyboard while in a piped loop, subshell execution, inline input, executing a command once for each file in a directory, and multiple ways to construct a continuous loop.
