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.

are java commands in linux different from the java commands in windows?
99% of the time, no, however there may of course be certain situations where a program has been written for linux which will not compile/run on windows because some platform-specific code exists - it could be something as simple as a file location - a hard-coded /home/me/file.txt ain't going to get you far in windows.
When you test b == 0, you declare the b statement be b = a - c instead of b = c - a
Considering a squared plus b squared equal c squared, C is always larger than A or B,
wouldn't this fact mitigate the need to test either A or B for a negative value? The
text book example of a right triangle is a=3, b=4, c=5; squared, 9=25-16 and 16=25-9
Any number squared becomes a positive. You only subtract a smaller square from a
larger square. It should be impossible for the difference to ever be a negative
