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.

Could someone possibly email me at <removed> and help me with my bash shell script assignment? This is my first linux class and Im taking it online, which is turning out to be a huge mistake, my teacher doesnt answer back quickly at all and I'm having a hard time with this assignment. I am not asking you to do the assignment just please guide me in the right direction. I really dont want to have to drop this class and take it again next semester. For the assignment we had to download a pdf to the terminal which I have done now I need help.
this is the assignment
Create a bash shell script, named uniq-teams.sh that uses pdftotext, sed, and perl -p -i -e (note: you may not need the -i) to create a sorted list of non-duplicated team names from the selected pages of the PDF file.
It must take the following parameters:
input pdf filename
If any of the parameters are missing, your program should print usage instructions.
Your script must remove the following:
Must remove blank/empty lines
Must remove duplicates
Must remove non-team lines, e.g. Area and Ballroom
Thanks a lot in advance.
