Linux is today's dominant Internet server platform. System administrators and Web developers need deep Linux fluency, including expert knowledge of shells and the command line. This is the only guide with everything you need to achieve that level of Linux mastery. Renowned Linux expert Mark Sobell has brought together comprehensive, insightful guidance on the tools sysadmins, developers, and power users need most, and has created an outstanding day-to-day reference, updated with assistance from coauthor Matthew Helmke. This title is 100 percent distribution and release agnostic. Packed with hundreds of high-quality, realistic examples, it presents Linux from the ground up: the clearest explanations and most useful information about everything from filesystems to shells, editors to utilities, and programming tools to regular expressions. Use a Mac? You'll find coverage of the macOS command line, including macOS-only tools and utilities that other Linux/UNIX titles ignore. 'A Practical Guide to Linux Commands, Editors, and Shell Programming, Fourth Edition', is the only guide to deliver: A MariaDB chapter to get you started with this ubiquitous relations database management system (RDBMS); A masterful introduction to Python for system administrators and power users; In-depth coverage of the 'bash; and 'tsch' shells, including a complete discussion of environment, inheritance, and process locality, plus coverage of basic and advanced shell programming; Practical explanations of core utilities, from 'aspell' to 'xargs', including 'printf' and 'sshfs/curtlftpfs', PLUS macOS-specific utilities from 'ditto' to 'SetFile'; Expert guidance on automating remote backups using 'rsync'; Dozens of system security tips, including step values, sequence expressions, the eval builtin, and implicit command-line continuations; High-productivity editing techniques using 'vim' and 'emacs'; A comprehensive, 300-plus-page command reference section covering 102 utilities, including 'find', 'grep', 'sort', and 'tar'; Instructions for updating systems using 'apt-get' and 'dnf'; And much more, including coverage of BitTorrent, 'gawk', 'sed', 'find', 'sort', 'bzip2', and regular expressions.
