Long format refers to additional information that is associated with the file, such as ownership, permissions, data, and filesize. Piping, represented by the pipe character " ", is used to combine two or more commands together.
The output of the first command serves as input the next command, and so on. A superuser is a special type user who has open access to all files and commands on a system. Note that the superuser's login is usually root, and is protected by a so-called root password.
Each time you enter a command, a variable named PATH or path will define in which directory the shell will search for that command. In cases wherein an error message was returned, the reason maybe that the command was not in your path, or that the command itself does not exist. Every process is uniquely identified by a process identifier.
It is possible to view details and status regarding a process by using the ps command. A directory, being a special type of file, follows the same naming convention as that of files.
Letters and numbers are used, along with characters like underscore and dot characters. The root account is very important, and with abusive usage, can easily lead to system damage. That's because safeguards that normally apply to user accounts are not applicable to the root account.
The tee command does two things: one is to get data from the standard input and send it to standard output; the second is that it redirects a copy of that input data into a file that was specified.
When using the cat command to display file contents, large data that does not fit on the screen would scroll off without pausing, therefore making it difficult to view. On the other hand, using the more command is more appropriate in such cases because it will display file contents one screen page at a time. Parsing is the process of breaking up of a command line into words.
This is made possible by using delimiters and spaces. In the event that tabs or multiple spaces are part of the command, these are eventually replaced by a single space.
