Linux cheat sheet
A Linux cheat sheet is a great way to learn things. When I was going to school my teachers encouraged us to make them to study for tests. Using them during the tests of course was forbidden. When I taught computer related subjects I encouraged the same things with the same rules.
Writing cheat sheets also kept things in my mind longer, so they were useful that way. Now I have cheat sheets on many subjects and I am going to share my Linux cheat sheet with you now.
I made my cheat sheet into a shell script since I do most of my work at the command line. I can copy and paste the commands that I want into the command line and modify to my heart’s content.
Here is a part of the code
The cheat sheet goes over many categories:
- Network functions
- File Transfers
- System Information
- Hardware Information
- Performance Monitoring
- User Management
- File & Directory Commands
- Process Management
- TAR Files
- Installing packages
Here is a zipped up version of the code.
