Publisher Comments:

Unlock the secrets of the Terminal and discover how this powerful tool solves problems the Finder cant handle. With this handy guide, youll learn commands for a variety of tasks, such as killing programs that refuse to quit, renaming a large batch of files in seconds, or running jobs in the background while you do other work.

Get started with an easy-to-understand overview of the Terminal and its partner, the shell. Then dive into commands neatly arranged into two dozen categories, including directory operations, file comparisons, and network connections. Each command includes a concise description of its purpose and features.

  • Log into your Mac from remote locations
  • Search and modify files in powerful ways
  • Schedule jobs for particular days and times
  • Let several people use one Mac at the same time
  • Compress and uncompress files in a variety of formats
  • View and manipulate Mac OS X processes
  • Combine multiple commands to perform complex operations
  • Download and install additional commands from the Internet

Synopsis:

Every Mac user knows how to work with windows and icons, but there is a wonderful application behind the scenes—the Terminal—that provides tremendous additional power. With this handy guide, youll learn valuable commands that remove limits and open doors that many Mac users dont know exist. Discover how to solve common tasks that are awkward or difficult in the Finder by opening the Terminal and typing a few commands. Among hundreds of tasks, youll be able to:

  • Log into your Mac from remote locations
  • Search and modify files in powerful ways
  • Kill programs that refuse to quit
  • Set up scheduled jobs that run at particular days & times
  • Let several people use one Mac at the same time
