    I'm just going out on a limb here, but I'm gonna say... CLI (terminal) :mamoru:



    :ugh:
     
  4. Funny, I always thought the Terminal was software, not a piece of information.

    yes, the terminal is an interface... what's your point?

    It's pretty obvious he wants a walk-through on various commands to start learning the CLI. :hsugh:

    So are you just trolling through?

    macosxhints.com is a good resource, however if you are interested in the "why" a little more than the "how", I'd advise you to read the beginner tutorials from the various linux distributions in existence (debian.org, for example).

    Granted, FreeBSD UNIX differs from Linux in a number of ways, but they share more similarities than differences. Moreover, at the beginner level, most of those differences won't come into focus anyway, and the more you know about command-line interfaces in general, the better off you are :)
     
  8. Yeah, I'm not the one who wanted to "learn Terminal."

    my appologies if i was not clear on what i wanted to do. I am trying to learn the basic commands and techniques used to run the terminal interface in order to deepen my understanding and the capabilities of my 15" 1.5 GHz Powerbook. I hope i didn't miss anything.


    no, i've been reading this forum for a couple of months now. The Mac Shack is the only real reason I'm on OT but I know I don't really know that much about macs compared to you guys so i just try and keep my mouth shut and pay attention in hopes of learning something.

    dude, it's cool... he was responding to the fuckwit known as Mr. Thermistor. Your questions are more than welcome here :)

    Hopefully my post earlier will give you some place to start, as well as the other helpful replies here

    "tab tab" in terminal gives you "all possible commands" =)

    then use "man" to figure out which ones you want and how to use it.
