  2. 2. LAMP Stands For L - Linux A - Appache M - MySQL P - Php
  3. 3. LINUX Definition: Linux is a free open source Operating System, based on Unix. It is available from many vendors with optional paid for support and provides an increasingly viable alternative to the Win 32, platform.
  4. 4. Syntax: mkdir Example: mkdir [option] directory Make Directory
  5. 5. Syntax: cd Example: cd .. CHANGE DIRECTORY
  6. 6. Syntax: mv Example: mv testdir newnamedir CHANGE THE NAME OF DIRECTORY
  7. 7. REMOVE AN EXISTING DIRECTORY Syntax: rmdir Example: rm -r
  8. 8. LISTING OF DIRECTORY Syntax: ls Example: ls
  9. 9. COPY FILE To copy file use Syntax: cp Example: cp myfile yourfile
  10. 10. Creates a symbolic link to a file Make links between files, by default, it makes hard links; with the `-s' option, it makes symbolic (or &quot;soft&quot;) links. Syntax: ln [Options]... target [Linkname] ln [Options]... target... Directory
  11. 11. SENDS FILE CONTENT TO STANDARD OUTPUT To send a file content to standard output use Syntax: cat

  14. 14. EXIT FROM A LOOP Exit from a for, while, until, or select loop Syntax: break [n] If n is supplied, the nth enclosing loop is exited. n must be greater than or equal to 1. The return status is zero unless n is not greater than or equal to 1.
  15. 15. COMPARE TWO FILE Compare two files, and if they differ, tells the first byte and line number where they differ. You can use the `cmp' command to show the offsets and line numbers where two files differ. `cmp' can also show all the characters that differ between the two files, side by side. Syntax: cmp options... FromFile [ToFile]
  16. 16. COMPARE DIFFERENT FILES Display the differences between two files, or each corresponding file in two directories. Each set of differences is called a &quot;diff&quot; or &quot;patch&quot;. For files that are identical, diff normally produces no output; for binary (non-text) files, diff normally reports only that they are different. Syntax: diff [options] from-file to-file

  40. 40. An arbitrary precision calculator language Syntax: bc options file... Explanation: bc is a language that supports arbitrary precision numbers with interactive execution of statements. bc starts by processing code from all the files listed on the command line in the order listed. After all files have been processed, bc reads from the standard input. All code is executed as it is read.
  41. 41. Run a shell builtin Run a shell builtin, passing it args, and return its exit status. SYNTAX: builtin [shell-builtin [args]] This is useful when defining a shell function with the same name as a shell builtin, retaining the functionality of the builtin within the function.
  42. 42. Conditionally perform a command Conditionally perform a command, case will selectively execute the command-list corresponding to the first pattern that matches word. Syntax: case word in [ [(] pattern [| pattern]...) command-list ;;]... esac The `|' is used to separate multiple patterns, and the `)' operator terminates a pattern list. A list of patterns and an associated command-list is known as a clause. Each clause must be terminated with `;;'.
  43. 43. Convert a full pathname to just a path Convert a full pathname to just a path Syntax dirname pathname Prints all but the final slash-delimited component of a string (presumably a filename). If PATHNAME is a single component, `dirname' prints `.'
  44. 44. Estimate file space usage Disk Usage - report the amount of disk space used by the specified files and for each subdirectory. Syntax du [options]... [file]... With no arguments, `du' reports the disk space for the current directory. Normally the disk space is printed in units of 1024 bytes, but this can be overridden

  50. 50. Convert tabs to spaces Convert tabs to spaces, write the contents of each given file, to standard output, with tab characters converted to the appropriate number of spaces. If no file is given, or for a file of `-', write to standard input Syntax: expand [options]... [file]...
  51. 51. Evaluate expressions Evaluate expressions, evaluates an expression and writes the result on standard output. Syntax: expr expression...
  52. 52. Do nothing, unsuccessfully Do nothing, returning a non-zero (false) exit status Syntax: false `false' does nothing except return an exit status of 1, meaning &quot;failure&quot;. It can be used as a place holder in shell scripts where an unsuccessful command is needed.
  53. 53. Send job to foreground Send job to foreground Syntax fg [PID...] Options: If PID is specified, the job with the specified group id is put in the foreground.
  54. 54. Format disks or tapes Syntax: Format

  57. 57. Print a string until interrupted Syntax: Yes `yes' prints the command line arguments, separated by spaces and followed by a newline, forever until it is killed. If no arguments are given, it prints `y' followed by a newline forever until killed. The only options are a lone `--help' or `--version'.

  59. 59. Print byte, word, and line counts Print byte, word, and line counts, count the number of bytes, whitespace-separated words, and newlines in each given FILE, or standard input if none are given or for a FILE of `-'. Syntax: wc [options]... [file]... Options: -c --bytes --chars Print only the byte counts.

  62. 62. CONVERT AND COPY A FILE Convert and copy a file, write disk headers, boot records, create a boot floppy. dd can make an exact clone of an (unmounted) disk, this will include all blank space so the output destination must be at least as large as the input. Syntax dd [Options]
