Simple Unix Reference


Intended for beginners to the unix or linux worlds, this App is a lightweight reference of commonly used commands, and tools such as 'vi', 'sed', 'perl', and 'awk'. Content is organized into 'Subjects', each containing examples grouped into the 'Sections'.

Subject 'Unix Commands' contains sections on File Commands, Process Management, File Permissions, Searching, Modifying Command Output, System Info, Compression, Network and Shortcuts.

Subject 'vi' contains reference for the vi editor and contains sections on Cursor Movement, Scrolling, Marking position and moving, Entering Text, Cut, Copy & Paste, Searching and Replacing, and other Miscellaneous examples

Subject 'perl' contains sections on Files and Directories, System Processing, Regular Expressions, Variable and Arrays, String Functions, Printing, and File Test

Subject 'sed' contains sections on Using sed, Files Spacing, Numbering, Text Conversion and Substitution, Selective Printing of Certain Lines, Selective Deletion of Certain Lines, and some Special Applications.

Subject 'awk' contains sections on Usage examples, Special variables, and String matching reference

The App does not require any special permissions to run and has been optimized to use minimal resources. Use the menu to collapse or expand all sections. Each section may independently be collapsed or expanded by tapping the section header on top of each section.

This app contains no advertisements.

Great! Works in horizontal mode & you make the fonts larger. A lot of great content, including VI, perl, awk and sed.
