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.

With tax season coming up I have been asked to set up a certain centralized tax service for a company. I won't mention the company nor the well known tax program involved as this post isn't about flaming a product but just to show you how cool commands in Linux can be used to solve, what would originally seem like, complicated problems.
Here's the scenario. The software runs on JBoss (a java app server) and it has log output. During client testing with fake social security numbers...
