syntax not syntex

I presume you mean 'syntax', which describes the precise way you write commands. Switches are words or letters you append to the command to modify its behaviour. Commands and switches can vary according to the shell you're using.
Presuming that you're using bash, which is the most common shell, this link should prove useful.

Best of luck!

So far, you have a perfect record: You have not followed up in any thread you have started, even when people have specifically asked you for more information.

As I suggested in a previous thread, you need to ask more specific questions if you want to get help here. It will also help if you tell us what books you are using.
