This compact book offers a user-friendly tour of your Mac's Unix base. As you explore Terminal and familiarize yourself with the command line, you'll also learn about the hundreds of Unix programs that come with your Mac and begin to understand the power and flexibility of Unix. Updated to cover Jaguar (Mac OS X, 10.2), this book should keep you current with the latest features of your Mac. The book begins with a quick but in-depth introduction to Terminal and the command line interface. After learning about launching and configuring the Terminal application, you'll find out how to manage, create, edit, and transfer files. You'll find all the common commands simply explained with accompanying examples, exercises, and opportunities for experimentation. There are even problem checklists to help you along the way if you get stuck. It shows how to: customize your shell environment; manage files and directories; successfully print from the Unix command line; edit and create files with the vi editor; perform remote logins; access Internet functions; understand pipes and filters; use background processing; and use Fink, an easy way to install open source Unix software on Mac OS X.
