Linux Runs on Text: Understanding & Handling Text

,----[ Quote ]
| This month, as another part of the series about using text on Linux systems, | we’ll introduce “plain text� and how you can restructure it. We’ll see how to | identify text from different systems (Unix, DOS, Mac) and to convert text | between systems. The article ends with some examples, and there’ll be lots | more next month. | | If you’re used to clicking on files to view and edit them, you’ll probably | find some new tools and concepts here. Gurus, please have a look at the main | example and be sure it’s familiar. `----



Linux on the line: musings on the CLI / GUI flip-flop

Geek to Live: The command line comeback

| applications.


Well, all I have to do at the login screen is to type in ">console" and I'm in pure text mode.
