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.

Hey..I am pretty much newbie as far a Linux or Unix Programming is concerned..and I want to develop my skills.I have been reading the HOWto stuff for basic Unix Programming in C.I have also read Quite a bit of Richard Stevens(Unix Network Programming)..Now ..I just want to create some basic application..using my skills..I dont know where to start.I just want to do a basic Unix C/C++ project ..to gain confidence..has any one got any idea?
well pop into command line and just open a blank file with a text editor such as vim, so you will type :
and then do your stuff, then press esc and type :wq and save and quit the file
then you will type
gcc -o testprogram filename.c
and if you don't use the -o filename part, and end up just typing gcc filename.c then the executable file will still be made, but it will be named a.out ...
and it will make the executable file and then you will type
to run it
