Are you faced with learning UNIX? Have your typed "LS" to see a list of files, and gotten an error message instead? Relax -- "UNIX For Dummies" guides you through the tricks and traps of UNIX, while steering you away from all that technical stuff you don't want to know about. (Hint: try typing "ls" instead! Capitalization counts.)


  • The book's flawless, as far as we know! When our eagle-eyed readers point out mistakes, we'll list them here.


  • Page 69: You can copy a group of files using the asterisk (*) wildcard. For example, you can copy all the files from the current working directory to another directory by typing "cp * directoryname" replacing "directoryname" with the pathname where you want to copy the files.
