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.

I have just exported my LDAP, and i am trying to make a list with all user login names, along with their real names and departments.
I tried doing so with the "cut" command, but cut cuts inside "quotation, marks". This way, i have two fields inside the quotation marks, which i don't want. Is there any way to select these fields, for user-id, first name, and last name, and put them in a list?
Can you change the exported field separator (i.e. in LDAP)?
Can you specify a <Tab>, which is cut's default field separator, instead of the current comma? This would kill the proverbial 2 birds w/ one stone -- the commas inside quotes would be distinguished from the field separators, & there would be no need to change the separator in the cut command.
