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 there, i am looking for a web browser that i can manipulate from the command line.
i know that with mozilla i have about six or seven commands that i read about on the mozilla website, like
mozilla - remote "openurl(www.somethingorother.com)"
and an already open mozilla browser will go there.
really cool. but i need one that can do more stuff, like download a page and maybe even send an email (right now it can just open the email program window)
so, i guess it doesn't matter what browser i use ( konqueror, firefox, galeon, whatever) as long as it can be controlled from a command line.
it looks good, konqueror would work just fine.
well this one has install instructions that go ./configure make and make install.
it is weird, usually when i use a python module, it justs comes with a setup.py install script that i run. that or i just put the whole thing into the directory that the script will run from .
google has turned up a lot for screen scraping indeed, but almost everything just reads html, or xml.
thanks for your help. there is a really easy to use python module called BeautifulSoup (of all things) but it is only good after the html is ready.
