Linux Command Library

There are two kinds of commands used in Linux: Built-in Shell Commands and Linux Commands. (Read here for a brief introduction on their differences.)

* Shell Command Library
* Linux Command Library

Please note: Commands might vary somewhat in syntax and usage from one distribution of Linux to another, and from one type of shell to another. The command libraries here are provided as general references. Use the man command to see how a command is used in a particular shell and on your particular Linux distribution.
