Basic CLI (Command Line Interface) Tools Pt. 2

Posted 06-19-2013 at 07:35 PM by Nbiser

In Pt. 1, I covered basic command line tools and commands. I will continue that theme here, in Pt. 2.

First I would like to cover the command ps. This command is used to view processes. In its basic form without any options its output looks like this:
Code:
nbiser@linux-vqbm:~> ps
  PID TTY          TIME CMD
14933 pts/1    00:00:00 ps
17047 pts/1    00:00:00 bash
Here it only shows the most basic processes that are running on the system. PID stands for the process...

There are many tools in the command line interface that are good to know if you want to use Linux. But don't worry, they aren't all that hard to learn! First, you will need to open a terminal window (only if you are using a graphical user interface (GUI). Once you are in the terminal you can type
Code:
ls
This will display the contents of your current working directory, which should look something like this,
Code:
bin      Documents  Music     Public       Templates
Desktop  Downloads  Pictures
