The Essential Unix/Linux Reference

The Essential Unix/Linux Reference
Unearthed by Lee Holmes

Fellow Gnomie and Sheller Lee Holmes has compiled his essential guide to Unix and Linux. Lee tells me that Chris has featured his guide in a previous Windows Daily, but that he thinks this might actually be a better target audience!

What would compel this compilation undertaking? I’ll let Lee tell you:

“My friend got a great Unix reference the other day — a $14 buy from one of those “up to 80% off” computer discount bins. No matter how hard I looked, though, I couldn’t find one worth buying second hand.

“Rather than spend the fifty bucks on a new Unix / Linux command reference, I decided to create my own: an edited and compiled version of the almighty manpages for 39 of the most used (and useful) Unix / Linux commands.”

This is, indeed, a thorough reference, available in PDF and text formats. With more than 370 pages of commands culled from the Linux man pages, Lee has pulled off a monumental task.
