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.

why would you want to do that?? that just seems pointless. There is no system level way to hide a file other than putting a "." at the start of the file name, and so if you're using these headers then that will break them. If you mean doing this is some file manager GUI thing, then maybe there is a way specific to it, but I doubt it. I suggest you decide you don't want to do this in the first place.
for instance when i open main.cpp with Kate a main.cpp~ appears also in the folder. Its its cache temporary no?
If i could not see it. I have 10 headers opened in the same folder and se also their 10 ~ in the folder tree
Yes theyre exactly that evo2
many programs - text editors included - make backup files with the same filename with a ~ added to the end. If you don't want those files you probably can configure your editor to not make them: look through whatever options/config menu you editor has.
Hmm... so its not just like windows, hidden files dont have the same functionality. :S
Correct. A text editor is nothing like an OS*.
Ok I will try making it not to create backups.
Hope that wont mean any problems eh
If Kate uses other KDE infrastructure eg the KDE file manager (whatever that may be), you may able to configure it to ignore those ~ files. For example there is a nice little program called, ls (which is one of many tools that I use instead of a file manager) that can be told to ignore files ending in ~. Eg
% touch foo bar foo~ bar~
bar bar~ foo foo~
% ls -B
* Although the editor I use is often compared to one.
Sorry Jhon VV I mean hide files WITH THAT EXTENSION not the extensions of files. Like making them hidden in windows
Woow thank you Sirs Someone has sugested the fullstop "." but sed to avoid it dont know why
About VIM im told by many thats the best for programming as "Most Adaptable Options to your needs than anything other" but couldnt get what they mean. I ha a hard time making new lines. What kind of adapts it has that can be more comfortable to Kate?
