Will Slicing & Dicing Lead to a Universal Brotherhood of Man?
One of the nice things about Linux is that it comes with a bunch of tools to help you manipulate files and data without writing
For example, if you want to search inside a bunch of files, pull out all lines that contain a certain keyword, sort those lines,
eliminate duplicates, and then print just the third column of each line, it's really not much trouble using the tools described in this
Writing a C program to do that would not be a trivial exercise, even for an experienced programmer. But you can use these slicing-and-dicing tools like building blocks to manipulate data and produce reports without a computer science degree.
Following is a description of how each tool works, and at the end of the section, you'll find some tips on how to combine them into
even more powerful commands.

Have been dabbling in and out of Linux for several years, giving it up just
few hours after starting and never going past few pages. This time, I have
reached halfway through the entire tutorial in one sitting! Many thanks,
Bob. Quite a page turner :)

I welcome your comments. However... I am puzzled by many people
who say "Please send me the Linux tutorial." This website *is* your Linux Tutorial! Read everything here, learn
all you can, ask questions if you like. But don't ask me to send what you already have. :-)
