Some questions in the command line.


Newb Here,

Is is safe to use the halt command to shutdown your linux operating system? How would i find this out or what would i type in to find this out in the command line.

Also, what command can be used to list all files (including hidden) that end with the letter "c" in $HOME?

And, What options are avaliable with the command pwd? What would I type in the command line to find this out?

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Ad 1)
It is safe (within reason, that is) .... halt will first
"politely ask" all process to terminate themselves,
than send them a SIGKILL after a while, and then
shut the system down ... if you happen to have an
unsaved file in an editor it won't ask you to save
them, though ...

Ad 2)
ls -al *c

Ad 3)
man pwd



Code:
       --help display this help and exit

       --version
              output version information and exit

Cheers,
Tink
