Linux Classic — “Linux in a Nutshell” — updated

SEBASTOPOL, CA — The hot-off-the-press second edition of
Linux in a Nutshell contains all user programming,
administration, and networking commands with options, and also
documents a wide range of GNU tools. New material in the second
edition includes popular LILO and Loadlin programs used for
dual-booting, a Perl quick-reference, and RCS/CVS source control
commands. Linux in a Nutshell, 2nd Edition covers
the core commands available on common Linux distributions. This
isn’t a scaled-down quick reference of common commands, but a
complete reference containing all user, programming,
administration, and networking commands.

“With the explosion of interest in Linux, there are lots of new
Linux users,” says Ellen Siever, “When our first edition was
published, most Linux users had some familiarity with Unix, but now
many Linux users are new not just to Linux, but to Unix in general.
We wanted to provide them (as well as existing users) with a
convenient reference that has all the basics but isn’t
overwhelming.”

Linux in a Nutshell also documents a wide range
of GNU tools for UNIX users who have GNU versions of standard UNIX
tools. You’ll find all the essential commands you need to run your
system, as well as all the commands that historically have been
included on UNIX systems. Linux in a Nutshell is a
must for any Linux user; it weighs less than a stack of manual
pages, but puts everything you need at your fingertips.
