Shell/Terminal Review

When working from the terminal there are a few file based commands that are used on a daily basis and you will need to be comfortable using them through the course.

Common Commands

  • cd
  • mkdir
  • touch
  • open
  • ls
  • pwd
  • mv
  • cp
  • rm
  • echo
  • less

Exit Codes

Usually when we run commands from the terminal, they will automatically exit after doing a bit of work. We can also run applications from the terminal that run until we tell them to stop. Other times, there may be an error in a script that makes it hang up. For these situations, it is vital to know the different ways to send manual exit codes to your shell process.

  • CTRL + C - Code 130 - Manual exit from script
  • CTRL + D - End of File
