Competition Winner for Ubuntu Kung Fu Book

by on December 4, 2008 · 1 comment· LAST UPDATED December 4, 2008


Last week I decided to run a little competition to see your tips related to UNIX and Linux. A massive thank you to all that have participated.

There were total 185 entries. Many entries were nice and I really enjoyed reading all of them. But, there can only be 3 winners (randomly selected):

=> slappinjohn
=> Hunter Perrin
=> Michael

There were many other great entries and I recommend you to check them out in the comments section.

Next month I will announce another small competition. If any one is interested sponsoring or would like give away as a prize in a competition, please contact me.

Hi All,

Typing commands in a ssh session sometimes takes time to see
the result. When you see a mistake, some shortcuts can help you
edit that easily. These are some Keyboard shortcuts in shell
and vi editor. Some of you may find this useful. [ Experienced
users, juz ignore :-) ]


ctrl-a Move to beginning of line
ctrl-e Move to end of line
ctrl-k Erase the rest of line from the position of cursor
ctrl-l Clear screen
ctrl-r Incremental search backwards
ctrl-u Erase entire line
alt -d Delete the word following the cursor ( dot works as
delimitter )
alt-b move back word by word
alt-f move forward word by word
