A brief glossary of unix commands


This list of some basic unix commands was taken from the web. To get more information on any of these commands refer to the man pages. For example: to learn more about the "cd" command just type "man cd" (without the quotes).

This list is far from complete. Suppose you want to know whether a unix command exists to accomplish a certain task. Type "man -k keyword" (again without the quotes) and a list of commands related to your keyword will be displayed.
