UNIX Survival Guide

This is the home of the Unix Survival Guide. This document should help the non-UNIX savvy computer user to get along with an UNIX operating system. It mainly focuses on how to use the command line. Details not concerning the casual user have been omitted. It should be suited for Sun Solaris, FreeBSD, and Linux systems.

You can read it online as a single page (176K) or, if you prefer, read the multiple-page version.

You may also want to download the PDF (356K) or text-only (100K) version for off-line reading.

I prepared archives containing the HTML, PDF, and text files of the Unix Survival Guide in different formats. Select the format that suit you best from the list below.
