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.

I've just installed DSL on an old laptop, and I'm using it to learn perl on, but I've come up against a real stumbling block.
I'm using the included monkey webserver, and everything works fine until I make a mistake in a script. Say I leave off a semi colon on a statement. When I try to run the script from Dillo, it nothing happens. The status bar at the bottom says "query sent, waiting reply".
OK, fair enough. I close Dillo, re-open the script, fix the error, save it. Re-open Dillo, try to access the script again. Again, nothing happens, even though it should work now.
I know, you're probably thinking I haven't fixed it, and I'm missing an error. I thought so too, so I copied and pasted my script into a new file, saved it under a new name, and geuss what? That runs fine.
Now obviously, I can work around this by just constantly re-naming my scripts, but to be honest thats a complete pain. Does anyone have any idea why this happening, and how I can stop it?
