PostPosted: Sun 18 Oct 2009, 04:17    Post subject:  Using the console  

I suppose one of the first stages of Linux programming is using
the console (on desktop) a little . . .

for example
zip filename * this is a comment - zip all the files in the directory
md5sum puppy4.4CE.iso checks if file has downloaded OK

and maybe these individual commands:

    clear
    cal
    top
    eject sr0
    free

. . . and then what? . . .

ls, cat, grep, head, tail, cut, |, echo, >, <, >>, sed
xdialog, gtkdialog
Look at (and modify) other people's code. Google to find it if necessary.

Find that recent topic about the reference card for linux commands. And the gtkdialog hints and tips thread.
Of course Puppy could always include a proper language like tcl as well Smile

I followed the tutorial link someone posted http://steve-parker.org/sh/variables1.shtml, and was learning things by the time I got to page 4 Smile
