9780073133614: Harley Hahn's Guide to Unix and Linux

Harley Hahn's Guide to Unix and Linux is a modern, comprehensive text for anyone who wants to learn how to use Unix or Linux. The book is suitable as a primary or secondary textbook for classroom use, as well as for readers who want to teach themselves. The text covers all the basic concepts and tools Unix/Linux users need to master: Unix vs Linux, GUIs, the command line interface, the online manual, syntax, the shell, standard I/O and redirection, pipes and filters, vi, the Unix file system, and job control.

Hahn offers a thoroughly readable approach to teaching Unix & Linux by emphasizing core ideas and carefully explaining unfamiliar terminology. The book walks readers through Unix & Linux systems from the very beginning, assuming no prior knowledge and laying out material in a logical, straightforward manner. An experienced author, Hahn writes in a clear, engaging, and student-friendly style, resulting in a text that is both easy and entertaining to read. Motivating pedagogy, such as “What’s in a Name?” boxes and highlighted Hints provide readers with interesting background and helpful tips.
