We mainly explored navigating the file-system from a Bash shell. You can continue building Bash shell skills by referencing the official GNU Bash Reference Manual
The entire manual will take you through the entire Bash shell and how it can be used. That may be overwhelming. We recommend checking out some specific sections as a great place to continue your Bash shell learning journey:
- Bash Shell Pipelines
: to learn how to pass the output (STDOUT) of one command to another command.
cat /etc/passwd | grep studenthow has the output been modified from running
- Redirecting Output
: to learn how to redirect the various input/output streams in Linux.
echo "My name is Paul!" > name.filelook for a new file called
cat /etc/passwd > users.filelook for a new file called
It is also a good idea to start learning about the importance of files in Linux. You can begin this journey with the Ubuntu: FilePermissions article.
