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.
- 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!
