Level up with “Take Control of the Mac Command Line with Terminal, Second Edition”
It’s easy to forget that OS X is based on Unix, but those in the know often drop to the Unix command line for tasks that are difficult or impossible to accomplish in the Mac’s graphical interface. Six years ago, Joe Kissell penned “Take Control of the Mac Command Line with Terminal,” a book designed to help readers become comfortable and capable on the command line. Today we’re pleased to bring you the second edition of this essential reference. The book normally costs $15, but the 30% MUG discount drops that to $10.50. Learn more about the book and buy it via the coupon-loaded link below.
Written from a Mac user’s point of view, the book starts with the command-line fundamentals, helps you set up an environment that will work for you, and walks you through more advanced topics as your knowledge increases. To help you put your new-found skills to use, you’ll find 52 easy-to-follow, real-life “recipes” for simple tasks that are best done from the command line, as well as discussions of more complex tasks such as ssh-ing to a remote computer, transferring files via sftp and scp, handling permissions, logging in as root, installing Unix software, grappling with grep, and writing shell scripts that contain logic.
Thank you for your support of the Take Control series!
