Recommended Reading: Macintosh Terminal Pocket Guide


"Macintosh Terminal Pocket Guide" is a 232-book by Daniel J. Barrett designed to help you unlock the secrets of the Mac OS X Terminal and discover how this tool solves problems the Finder can’t handle and lets you access the UNIX base of Mac OS X.

The guide (US7.99 for an ebook version, $14.99 for a print version or $16.49 for both) provides commands for a variety of tasks, such as killing programs that refuse to quit, renaming a large batch of files in seconds, or running jobs in the background while you do other work.

"Macintosh Terminal Pocket Guide" kicks off with an overview of the Terminal and its partner, the shell. Then it dives into commands arranged into two dozen categories, including directory operations, file comparisons, and network connections. Each command includes a concise description of its purpose and features. Other topics include how to:

° Log into your Mac from remote locations;

° Search and modify files;

° Schedule jobs for particular days and times;

° Let several people use one Mac at the same time;

° Compress and uncompress files in a variety of formats;

° View and manipulate Mac OS X processes;

° Combine multiple commands to perform complex operations;

° Download and install additional commands from the Internet.

Barrett has been immersed in Internet technology since 1985. Currently working as a software engineer, he's also been a heavy metal singer, Unix system administrator, university lecturer, web designer, and humorist. Barrett is also the author of "O'Reilly's Linux Pocket Guide" and the co-author of "Linux Security Cookbook" and "SSH, The Secure Shell: The Definitive Guide."
