This book is intended to be used as a quick Linux reference rather than a step-by-step instruction manual. This updated sixth edition of this well-regarded book includes more specifics on Linux system essentials and more discussion on the program's new capabilities. The authors address Linux commands, boot methods, package management, the Bash shell, the Emacs editor, a variety of editors, the gawk programming language, source code management, and more. Authors are Siever (writer and editor, Linux and other open source specialist), Figgins (Linux server administrator), Love (Linux kernel and GNOME contributor), and Robbins (programmer, technical author).
