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.

since I'm new to linux, I"m finding it really hard to save my output values to .csv format. I hope you guys can help me.
I'm using geany as IDE. I have four analogue inputs to MCP3208 which gives input to my pi, after applying some features my pi returns me a value different for each 4 channels (i-e four values). i am taking 2000 samples. I can see those values in IDE or lxTerminal but i want to save all those values to .csv formatted file so that there is an ease of access.
The original poster may be more familiar with Windows powershell, which has an "export-csv" command. Powershell operates on objects/arrays/etc, so it makes sense to have an export-csv feature to export an object array.
*nix operates on streams of bytes, though. It's a fundamentally different paradigm. So in *nix, converting to a csv is a low level string manipulation task that depends on the format of what's going in.
