Bite size command line!

Puzzled by ps? Flummoxed by find? Always wondered about awk? The Bite Size Command Line zine is here to help! Every page takes a command line tool and explains the most important things to know about it.

What's in the zine

You'll get a 24-page PDF that you can download, read on your computer, and print into a booklet if you want to!

Commands you'll learn about: grep, find, xargs, awk, sed, tar, ps, top, sort, uniq, head, tail, less, kill, cat, lsof, and various SUPER USEFUL bash tricks.

Print directions:

The "print version" is formatted so that when you print it on your printer, it will fold correctly. (printing it out and giving copies to your friends is totally allowed! :)) You'll need to:

* make sure it's set to "landscape"

* print double sided

* choose "long edge" (not "short edge").

Some people have told me that the emails from Gumroad after buying the zine end up in their spam folder, so check there if you don't see it!
