computer help commands

i'm in intro to technology class and i have to find the definition of the command "hostname" you use on the computer and i already found it so no problem but

i also have to find examples and i looked on the internet such sites as computerhope and others. but i can't really find any. can you please help me.

i also have to find the switches (aka commands) for hostname because they have different switches that represent different functions. so if you have hostname -a, that means you can print stuff. if you have -i, you can see the info list of the computer. obviously that was just an example so it's not actually right.

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Here are some links for computer terminology:
