In today’s episode of the _Linux Terminal Tutorial_, I discuss slightly more advanced commands for use in the manipulation of text files. I talk about the commands:


As well as a few other concepts.
Sorry it has been such a long time since my last video. College started and began to eat up a lot of my time, and when I did have free time I didn’t think to make another video. I’m not going to commit to a schedule, but I will try and do one video a week from here on out….


  1. The '|' character is called a 'pipe'. It comes in very handy in certain situations. Also, for people who are using a console – only computer (I know they're rare, but still exist), holding right shift while pressing Page Up or Page Down will scroll through what previous screen output got bumped off. Most folks won't need to know the latter tip, but it's handy to know.

  2. this video is the one am talking about its not as clear as the first episodes or videos do you have any other version with the same background like the ones you made first?

  3. Doug, you should make more videos man! It's hard to understand my professors because their indian accents are so strong and it's hard to understand. Plus they lack the ability to clearly explain what everything does like you do. The only people who don't have a problem in the courses are people who already learned this stuff in their own country.

  4. I've been trying to learn all of the commands for linux lately and I have been but at a very slow pace, this was great, a few minutes and you've taught me so much. Also once I get more confident i really wanna make the switch to ArchLinux, but I've been really put off by it because from what I understand it is pretty difficult to setup. Could you make a Arch installation guide? Or give me some tips? Thanks xD

  5. Hi i am getting the message fs type ntfs not supported by kernel
