Hi there,

Apologize if i am posting this in a wrong group.

I am very new to Linux and trying to get fluency in linux terminal, before jumping to Grapical interface.

Now I am getting ok with file commands Ex: ls, mkdir .. etc.

But I like to make use of the applications through terminal. Can you please guide me the right way to how to find the available applications & examples.

I am using Fedora Core - 5

Many thanks
Ravi Jaganathan

One quick way to get started is by entering "info coreutils". Also, "help" gets you a quick list.

Eventually, you will want to get a book, but for starters there are lots of tutorials on the net. The RUTE guide (link in previous post) is often cited. Also, look at "Bash Guide for Beginners" by Machtelt Garrels.

And of course there is Google........."Linux commands" gets 41 million hits
