After practicing with the commands I learned last week, I feel a lot more confident using the Terminal. I practiced a lot in moving and renaming files and directories. I also created some new directories. At the beginning, I would keep the File Manager open so I could visualize what I was doing. Now I feel comfortable using the “ls” and “cd” commands to navigate without looking at the File Manager.
I’ve learned some more of the basic commands to use in the Terminal. I used the website Linux Survival again. I learned some more file manipulation. The “chmod” or change mode command will come in handy for both Ruby and C++, I can make my text files executable. I’ve got quite a few files I can practice chmod on, so that’s what I’m going to be doing.
I’m also feeling a lot more comfortable with Linux terminology. I’m starting to think “directory” instead of “folder,” which makes remembering the commands easier. I think after I complete this set of tutorials, I might be ready to retackle “Linux in a Nutshell.”
ls -l – long list, lists details for files in a directory
cp – copy files
rm – remove files
rmdir – remove directory
chmod – change mode (file permissions)
chmod ugo +/- rwx – change mode options, uso = user, group, other, rwx = read, write, execute
groups – lists groups I’m in
