Learning the BASH shell

Today we’ll explore the BASH shell a bit.

BASH is extremely powerful, yet succinct.

To view the built-in BASH commands available on a Linux system try:
“man -k bash”

To save these to a file in your home directory for later review try:
“man -k bash |awk ‘{print $1}’ > ~/bash_commands_available.txt”

And to view the available options for each command try:
“help command_I_want_to_learn”
replacing “command_I_want_to_learn” with something like “cat”

To learn about the help system try:
“help help”
