Linux Mint 16

01. Your home directory can be represented by what single character?
"-" or /home/<username>

02. What is a user friendly text editor which comes pre-installed in Mint that can be used directly in the terminal?

03. My boss just told me that they want to see a long listing of all files with inodes and recursively from the directory I'm currently in. I know there's a command I can use to accomplish this task, but I can't remember its name! What command could I use to help me find the command which will accomplish this task?

04. I found the command; great! Now, I still need to do a long listing of all files with inodes and recursively from the directory I'm currently in, but I can't remember all the switches I need to use. What command can I run in the terminal to see all the available options of a command?

05. I found the command! I found my options! Now, what is the full command that will show me a long listing of all files with inodes and recursively from the directory I'm currently in. (Déjà vu)

06. Understanding the difference between relative and absolute paths is important; one will always take you where you want to go and the other will only work in limited situations. For the below two paths, tell me which one is the relative path and which is the absolute path

/var/log/mail

var/log/mail

07. In a Windows command prompt, I typed MkDir newdirectory and the directory was created; however, MkDir newdirectory did not work in my Linux terminal. Why didn't this command work when I tried it in Linux?

08. My current working directory is ~ and I really, really want to go to ~/OverThere/CoolStuffHere/ . What command will get me to where I want to go?

09. Here's a snippet of my history:

34 cd
35 ls
36 gobbledegook blah_blah -w -t -f --long-switch aWkward/ComBinationOf/MiXeDCaSe/under_scores/and.dots
37 ls

I'm going to be using gobbledegook blah_blah -w -t -f --long-switch aWkward/ComBinationOf/MiXeDCaSe/under_scores/and.dots a lot, but I don't want to type it out each and every time. What command can I do to quickly rerun that absurdly long command any time? Work smart, not hard! (Hint: You can do this in less than five keystrokes including Enter!)

10. I'm lost! The bash prompt says I'm in ~/Way/Down/The/Rabbit/Hole , but I want to know the full path of the directory I'm working in! What command will do this?

11. I would like to output the contents of a small text file aptly named smallfile.txt to the terminal; how would I do this?

12. Turns out that smallfile.txt had gone rogue and was actually a really long text file! When I tried to view the contents, it filled up the screen and then some. How can I view this file one page at a time?

13. If you can make nested directories, I know you can make single directories: Show me the command which will make the nested directories ~/eeny/meeny/miny/mo

14. I want to make a copy of the file audit.txt and name it redundancy.txt. Show me how!

15. It was pointed out to me that redundancy.txt wasn't a very descriptive name; let's fix this. Show me how to rename (not copy) redundancy.txt to January_Audit.txt .

16. Turns out I didn't need that file after all. Show me how to delete January_Audit.txt .

17. I have a file located at ~/WrongPlace/important.txt which I need to move to ~/RightPlace/ ; what full command will accomplish this task.

18. Earlier, the nested directories ~/eeny/meeny/miny/mo were created, but I no longer want the mo directory. Show me the command which will delete ONLY the mo directory.

19. Remember that long listing of all files with inodes and recursively for the current directory? Good. A long listing of all files will likely produce a lot of information; chain two commands together which will do a long listing of all files with inodes and recursively for the current directory AND allow me to look at the results one page at a time.

20. Having a system which is not update can be at best, an inconvenience, and at worst, a danger; show me the commands (Hint, hint: that's plural for a reason) which will update the software repositories and the system.
