Useful Commands

The following pages are about a few selected Linux commands, which you may not know about, that I have found very helpful. They were originally written with the Zaurus PDA in mind, so any comments about how to install packages will not apply to your Raspberry Pi, but there are some very detailed examples that I think will still be of interest if you are not already adept in using these.

awk: manipulate strings or columns of data
grep: search for file containing string
ldd: check dependencies
less: view file(s) with ability to search and scroll
lsof: list of open files
ps: information about current processes
