NB The unixmages link has some good stuff but there is a lot more here:

http://www.phys.uu.nl/~0020621/CP/unixf ... ngmage.pdf

looks like the original site no longer has most of the content.

The Wikipedia page on permissions is dense but appears fairly comprehensive:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File_system_permissions

I'm really posting, though, to point out the links on that page to some more digestible information:

http://dsl.org/cookbook/cookbook_9.html

This whole site (which is introductory) looks good - maybe someone has posted it to the thread already; EDIT seems rather dated, and Debian-focused



and this is very clear on a couple of points:

http://www.hackinglinuxexposed.com/arti ... 30417.html

(owner trumps group trumps world)

http://www.hackinglinuxexposed.com/arti ... 30424.html

(what directory permissions allow you to do to the files inside the directory)

A handy reference to some useful features of the command line history I hadn't come across.

Incidentally, he doesn't actually say that *repeating* C-r goes back to the previous occurence of the search term, as many times as you like.

Looks like many other good things on that site too! :)

This looks like an interesting project, combining introductory tutorials with a cloud-based VM to practise in. You just create an account and telnet in. The great thing is it's very hands-on, with lots of exercises - something I've often felt was lacking in much otherwise excellent documentation online. The exercises are interactive in the sense that the webpage checks what you've done in your VM.

How does this relate? Especially as the old post is relatively old already?

Yes, this is a nice addition to the list. The exercise and practice it offers can certainly be useful for beginners.
In fact, I used the sister SQLzoo link quite recently to reinforce a course I was taking on database.

What really matters is where you are going, not where you come from.

If any of the devs thinks an item is particularly good, its URL gets included in the first post, which now has a number of good links.

This particular item interested me more for the concept than the content - though there are some bits I really liked!
Ooops, sorry, must have missed the other pages and the titles on my tiny smartphone display. :D My apologies, just ignore that comment.


In that case, I've got an addition too. :)
If you want to try out programming this could be a very easy solution without much fiddling. The tour is more aimed at programmers though. But you can try out other code as well without needing to install anything or messing with compilers, ides and stuff.

If you're serious about it, you won't get around setting up a environment locally though. :P
