Where Are Some Good Places To Learn Command Lines


Hello im new to Linux, and i am choking... i know its got wonderful GUI's and everything but i am really interested in being able to work with the BASH shell so i can be more productive when i need to be, does anyone have a good list of links to webpages where i can learn ? and some good book references, when my eyes hurt from reading online ?

Thanks

There are plenty of things to print off, if you want a real book then look at investing in some O'Rielly hardware!

books

Great thing you feel so much interest in the shell, it is after all what gives Linux/Un*x-like OS their power, and soon allow you to do anything times faster than using the GUI.

There are some good websites, but honestly the best thing you can do is buy a book, as SqdnGuns said, O'Reilly books will teach you a lot, and also be very handy if you every want to write some long script and you forgot the syntax or some commands, etc.

Besides ABS and RUTE, both mentioned above, there are some very detailed overviews of specific commands and notions:
