Announcing LinuxCommand.org Version 3

Over the weekend I went live with a major revision to the LinuxCommand.org site. This update modernizes and improves the tutorials and simplifies the site to bring its content into sharper focus.

Both the Learning The Shell and Writing Shell Scripts tutorials have been updated and now incorporate some material from the book. The order of the lessons has also been slightly revised.

A few features of the old version of the site, such as the SuperMan Pages, Script Library, mailing lists, and RSS feed have been deprecated. If you have links to the old features, they will still work but they may go away in the future. I intend to add more links to external references (i.e. Further Reading sections to the lessons) and a few scripts to the new Resources page.

Please look it over and let me know about typos, and other screw-ups I may have missed. Thanks.

Next up: I am beginning work on the second edition of the book. If all goes well, you can expect to see that in the late summer.


  1. Phenominal! - Best tutorial -in easy tounderstand format! PLEASE keep it up.


  2. I love the front page "Now what?". Please keep up the awesome work.

  3. are we there yet? (summer has ended)

  4. First of all, many thanks for these pages. Im having my first linux experience for a study, but i came throught the problem of knowing no commands for the command line, so i searched for a good tutorial/handout for the command line (terminal) and came down here. Realy many many thanks for this!

    There is a typo on page: lc3_lts0080.php

    "you cam stop the word-splitting"

  5. Just finished the tutorials, and bought the book last week... Should be in early next week, can't wait to get my hands on it.
