Sample text

Never assume that you know everything that the user might want to do. What Is Linux? As you may already know, Linux is a freely distributed implementation of a UNIX-like kernel, the lowlevel core of an operating system. Because Linux takes the UNIX system as its inspiration, Linux and UNIX programs are very similar. In fact, almost all programs written for UNIX can be compiled and run on Linux. Also, some commercial applications sold for commercial versions of UNIX can run unchanged in binary form on Linux systems.

File system attributes, which we discuss in Chapter 2, are used to indicate that a file is a program that may be run. In Linux, you can replace scripts with compiled programs (and vice versa) without affecting other programs or the people who call them. In fact, at the user level, there is essentially no difference between the two. When you log in to a Linux system, you interact with a shell program (often bash) that runs programs in the same way that the Windows command prompt does. qxd:WroxPro 9/28/07 8:56 PM Page 6 Chapter 1: Getting Started searching for a file with the same name in a given set of directories.

You build a small and simple utility and people use it as one link in a string of others to form a command. One of the pleasures of Linux is the variety of excellent tools available. A simple example is this command: $ ls -al | more This command uses the ls and more utilities and pipes the output of the file listing to a screen-at-a-time display. Each utility is one more building block. You can often use many small scripts together to create large and complex suites of programs. For example, if you want to print a reference copy of the bash manual pages, then use $ man bash | col -b | lpr Furthermore, because of Linux’s automatic file type handling, the users of these utilities usually don’t need to know what language the utilities are written in.
