PCLinuxOS Magazine: Command Line Interface Intro Special Edition

News Comments Off on PCLinuxOS Magazine: Command Line Interface Intro Special Edition

The NEW PCLinuxOS Magazine staff is pleased to announce the release of the Command Line Interface Intro Special Edition of the PCLinuxOS Magazine.

Over the past year, The NEW PCLinuxOS Magazine had ran a series of monthly articles, designed to introduce users to the command line. Magazine staff member Peter Kelly, a.k.a. critter, is responsible for all of the articles in the series. He started with the assumption that the reader knew virtually nothing about the Linux command line, and set out to walk the reader, step by step, from the command line basics to more advanced command line topics, month after month. We have collected all of the articles from that article series here, into one special issue of the magazine. We hope that it will serve Linux and PCLinuxOS users for years to come, both as a reference resource and as a way for users to learn to use the command line, as well as the value of the command line.
