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.

Thanks for your reply veerain but i don't know how i can code a script I will wait if any other user can help me....
We will be happy to HELP you, but we aren't going to do it for you. You will have to show some effort of your own...there are THOUSANDS of easily-found scripting tutorials, and many examples you can find with a brief Google search.
You were directed to bash scripting tutorials at least three years ago...unless you actually START reading those tutorials, and putting some effort into writing your own scripts, you will NEVER be able to do it on your own. Again, we are happy to ASSIST you, but asking us to continue to write scripts for you isn't too nice.
Thanks unSpawn i will test it and i will let you know
Yes, that's a good command...and it is very much like others you were given previously, wasn't it? You were given a command similar to this in one of the posts I quoted, back from 2012. At some point, you need to take what you've been told, and apply it, rather than asking others to modify things to fit each situation for you.
I didn't ask for someone to write a perl script for me...I just ask if a command exist and anyone can share it with me....
Right...which again, is very much like things you asked before, isn't it?
2007 is the registration date when i start using Linux at least i try to use and then you can see a huge gap more than 5 years as i was use back Windows....So i do not try to use Linux for 8 years and do such stupid questions.
We have no idea what you do, or when you do it. And looking, there is no 'huge gap more than five years' in your posting history. You begin posting in 2007, and seem to only skip 2008 and 2011...there are posts from every other year in between.
I agree 100 percent with you and i try to do it when i have free time....You know wife, kids, job damn
Just like everyone else here, then??? Again, we're happy to HELP you, but you have to show some effort...we have the same things in life you do, but want us to take our time to figure something out for you, because you're busy?? So are we.
You are very aggressive with me and i don't know why
Not aggressive at all; pointing out you've been given similar answers many times, and don't seem to want to apply the knowledge, or try to learn on your own.
I got your advice and i will try to follow as i agree but when i can't follow it i will post here and IF anyone can/want to help then great if not no problem
The issue is, you will never be able to follow it, if YOU don't try things on your own. You post questions that are VERY similar to each other, and show no effort to solve the issue, and ask us how to do it. EFFORT is what we're asking you to show...if you post "I've tried xxx, yyy, zzz, similar to what I did here <link>, but I'm getting <answer>, and I'm confused", that's one thing. Saying "I need this..help" is different.
So please stop giving me more advices
Please stop asking people to do things like this for you, without showing effort of your own first.

Indeed...which goes back to what the OP was told three years ago.
If you don't see a gap here then i don't have anything to say....Or maybe you think with those numbers that i should be a Linux expert?
In post #4, you said: "you can see a huge gap more than 5 years"...then you post this, which very clearly shows you did NOT have a five year gap, does it? And as noted, you did skip 2008 and 2011. Expert? No..but you should have learned SOMETHING in that time, especially when you've been handed answers that could easily solve your issue now, if you put even a small amount of effort into reading a man page.
This is my last reply to you and yes i say a lie but only one at post #11 guess which one
You didn't have a five year gap, sorry.
But i will follow your quote style of replies just to be sure that you got it
Doesn't matter to me, but try to stay on topic, and learn. Again, asking people to feed you answers when you show ZERO effort of your own is rude. Especially when you're asking questions that only differ slightly from what you've asked before.
Show effort, and learn from what you've been told. Until you start doing that, you will never be an 'expert' at ANYTHING. Saying that YOU are too busy with your family to learn, then asking us to provide you answers (essentially, to save YOUR time, at the expense of ours), certainly won't get you much help.
Again, the "Question Guidelines" link in my posting signature was written by the LQ Site Owner...I suggest you read it. One relevant line:
