Hey! While learning various linux tools in the past, I made several cheat sheets to speed up learning process. Recently I decided to put them on my blog.

Here is a link to all the cheat sheets on my blog:

They include:
* awk (awk, nawk and gawk) programming language cheat sheet,
* sed, unix stream editor, cheat sheet,
* ed, interactive unix text editor, cheat sheet,
* perl's special variable cheat sheet,
* perl's pack/unpack and printf/sprintf function cheat sheet,
* screen vt100 terminal emulator cheat sheet,
* bash vi editing mode (readline) cheat sheet, and
* bash emacs editing mode cheat sheet.


Tell me what you think and I hope you find them useful :)

Removing the quotation marks fixes your links.

First freenode, now gentoo forums, why don't you quit spamming the internet with your cheat-sheets which you have extracted from the manpages and fucking die. Thanks.

What's wrong with you? Your post is completely useless except for bumping a thread which is from your point of view useless. :roll: :lol:

mark_alec FTW. :)

BTW, the cheat sheets and some of the other stuff on the website is pretty nice. Sure, much of it is from man and info pages, but it's in a nice concise format.

PostPosted: Tue Feb 19, 2008 3:28 pm    Post subject: Definitive Guide to Bash Command Line History Reply with quote

Hi all! I just wrote a another article with a cheat sheet. It's called "The Definitive Guide to Bash Command Line History". This tutorial teaches you how to quickly retrieve and modify commands you executed previously.

It starts by reviewing the keyboard shortcuts for history retrieval in emacs and vi editing modes, then it covers the commands for listing and erasing the history, then it goes into discussing history expansion mechanism - event designators, word designators and their modifiers. Finally the guide lists variables and options to modify the default history behavior.

The cheat sheet comes in PDF, Plain Text ASCII and LaTeX:

You can also use PageUp/PageDown to quickly search commands starting with typed text.

Example:
Code:
$ vim[PageUp]

gives you history of files edited with vim

or
Code:
$ xpdf man[PageUp]

searches for files starting with 'man' and opened with xpdf.

Just be sure to set the following in /etc/inputrc (or ~/.inputrc):
Code:
"\e[5~": history-search-backward
"\e[6~": history-search-forward

PostPosted: Thu Dec 04, 2008 2:33 am    Post subject: Set Operations in Unix Shell Reply with quote

Hi all, again! :)

I just published another article which comes with a cheat sheet. In this article I implemented various set operations by using awk, comm, sort, uniq, diff, join, head, tail, and other Unix utilities.

The article explains 14 various set operations:
* Set Membership.
* Set Equality.
* Set Cardinality.
* Subset Test.
* Set Union.
* Set Intersection.
* Set Complement.
* Set Symmetric Difference.
* Power Set.
* Set Cartesian Product.
* Disjoint Set Test.
* Empty Set Test.
* Minimum.
* Maximum.

The article can be read here: Set Operations in Unix Shell

I also created a .txt version of the article (cheat sheet):

What do you think about it?

As much as I appreciate your efforts to collect tables and lists from help and man pages and info files, I'm not sure if you run into legal problems if you claim

as you do on some of your cheat sheets, esp. if you publish them without mentioning the original source, author or license. I'm not a lawyer and certainly won't imply any maliciousness from you, but I have stong doubts that this copyright remark is legally correct.

No offense meant, but IMHO you should investigate a bit about possible license issues.

Thanks anyway for your work.
