Rpi3 Terminal commands reference

Tue Jul 05, 2016 6:44 pm

Does anyone know of a detailed reference source for Terminal Commands. I have the "Master the Command Line" booklet but I have found that many commands are simply are just not covered in that booklet. What I am looking for is a much more extensive detailed reference source if anyone knows of such a publication I would be very grateful.

Hope this helps,

In many cases

Code: Select all

man foo
works already if you want help for the program "foo" , but
if not you can use apropos as search tool. manpages (manual
pages) are the traditional help system on Linux. Every important
command will have a manpage.

Further ,

Code: Select all

apropos keyword
lists manpages related to the keyword. Some projects
only use manpages as documentation, so if you google them
the manpages will be listed as one of the first (and only
relevant) hits anyway.

Many thanks to all who replied particularly d.gordon for the book recommendation. I have just downloaded the PDF version and look forward to a long read.
