"shell" is generic. Google will tell you all about different shells---eg BASH, KSH, C shell, and more. On Linux, BASH is most common

I doubt if that exists. First, Unix and Linux are very similar, but are NOT the same. I suggest focussing on one at a time.[/QUOTE]

If you are using BASH on Linux, then you want this:

Large set of manuals www.linuxtopia.org
This is handy for researching cmds http://linux.die.net/man/
Note that you should be able to type
Code:
man this-cmd
to read the inbuilt manual pages for 'this-cmd'

Almost 100 of the most common commands are supplied by the coreutils package. Here is the manual for all these commands.

That's what I linked to; did you look?
You can use the man cmd at the cmd line of your system, but the web version is easier to read imho and has the advantage of hyperlinks to related cmds.
