    Thanks for the tut. Here's a thought or to that I had on it. you say
    deltree...................rm -r -Remove subdirectory
    Thats one way but I'd be nervous doing a recurisve delete seems that rmdir would be better -it will not allow you to delete a non-empty dir.

    I think that
    type......................cat -Show file contents on-screen (Text files)
    is good but I find more to be better -same effect as cat filename | more or type filename |more


    One missing things is Edit ..................................vi -see http://www.chem.brown.edu/instructions/vi.html#cursor for vi commands

    Cheers,

    Good job. I would call myself semi-fluent in DOS commands, and I am just getting into Linux, so this will help me out a lot. Now I can see equivalent commands for the two OSes.
