An Illustrated Guide to Shell Magic: Typing Less & Doing More

Just posted: The latest entry in our ongoing series of introductory Linux guides (the ones with the penguin cartoons), An Illustrated Guide to Shell Magic: Typing Less & Doing More:

This guide is a followup to An Illustrated Guide to Shell Magic: Standard I/O & Redirection. It’s about some of the other ways that Bash and its relatives provide for composable tools and general problem-solving.

It’s far from comprehensive. Rather, it’s a survey of some techniques and ideas that will let you spend less time typing and more time just doing stuff on a Raspberry Pi or similar machine.

Topics covered:

  • Reading the documentation
  • Installing software on a Raspbian system
  • Shell patterns and regular expressions
  • Finding files and text
  • Writing filters
  • Terminal multiplexing with tmux
  • …and more!

Enjoy!
