    Post UNIX common commands

    Hi, this is my first "tutorial" ever, this is a reference guide to common Unix Commands and it's intended to help newbies with Unix.

    If you have any question or sugestion please feel free to post here.


    I used Unix Complete as reference and man.


    I hope this helps,

    Pretty good reference, but you know what would make it outstanding for newbies? Cross-reference the Actions with the Commands. Most newbies when they're starting out don't know the name of the command they need, just the outcome they want to produce. For example:

    Standard:
    cmp -- compare 2 files
    Cross-referenced:
    Comparing files -- cmp, diff, dircmp (directories only)

    Oh, and one more thing. I've only seen the haltsys command used with SCO Unix. The shutdown command might be a bit more widespread. Great 1st tutorial, though!
