Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

There are incorrect examples on the internet of using OOo/LibreOffice BASIC to set Calc cell contents to display vertically, the same as can be done interactively via Format Cell -> Alignment -> Text Orientation and setting the angle to 90 degrees.

Here are some Visual Basic Script statements that generate the effect of the Linux date command used with format sequences %y, %Y, %b, %B, %n, %a, %A, %d, %H, %I, %p, %M and %S
Const DATE_PART_ABBREVIATE = True
' %y for year, two digit
strValue = Right(DatePart( "yyyy", Now), 2)
' %Y for year, four digit
strValue = DatePart( "yyyy", Now))
' %b for month name, example Jan
