附录 B. 简短辅导课程

尽管这本书的主要目标用户是管理员和高级用户,但是我们也不想忽视初学者。这篇附录是一篇讲述操作Unix 计算机基础内容。

B.1. Shell 和基本命令

在Uinx 世界中,每一个管理员迟早都要使用命令行;例如,当系统可能启动失败后只给了一个命令行恢复模式。所以在这样的环境种能够使用命令行是一种基本的生存技能。

B.1.1. 浏览目录与管理文件

打开会话之后,pwd 命令(print working directory)会显示当前位置。当前目录可以通过 cd 目录命令(cdchange directory)。上级目录叫..(两个点),当前目录为.(一个点)。ls 命令会列举目录中的内容,若没有参数,则其将对当前目录进行操作。

$ cd .

$ cd ..
$ pwd
$ ls

您可以使用 mkdir 目录名 命令创建一个新的目录,且可以使用 rmdir 目录名 命令删除一个已存在的(空的)目录。mv 命令可以移动和/或重命名文件和目录;删除一个文件可以使用 rm 文件名 命令来完成。
$ mkdir test
$ ls
Desktop    Downloads  Pictures  Templates  Videos
Documents  Music      Public    test
$ mv test new
$ ls
Desktop    Downloads  new       Public     Videos
Documents  Music      Pictures  Templates
$ rmdir new
$ ls
Desktop    Downloads  Pictures  Templates  Videos
Documents  Music      Public

B.1.2. 显示和修改文本文件

The cat file command (intended to concatenate files to the standard output device) reads a file and displays its contents on the terminal. If the file is too big to fit on a screen, use a pager such as less (or more) to display it page by page.
The editor command starts a text editor (such as vi or nano) and allows creating, modifying and reading text files. The simplest files can sometimes be created directly from the command interpreter thanks to redirection: echo "text" >file creates a file named file with “text” as its contents. Adding a line at the end of this file is possible too, with a command such as echo "moretext" >>file. Note the >> in this example.

B.1.3. 搜索文件和在文件中搜索

The find directory criteria command looks for files in the hierarchy under directory according to several criteria. The most commonly used criterion is -name name: that allows looking for a file by its name.
The grep expression files command searches the contents of the files and extracts the lines matching the regular expression (see sidebar BACK TO BASICS Regular expression). Adding the -r option enables a recursive search on all files contained in the directory passed as a parameter. This allows looking for a file when only a part of the contents are known.

B.1.4. 管理进程

The ps aux command lists the processes currently running and helps identifying them by showing their pid (process id). Once the pid of a process is known, the kill -signal pid command allows sending it a signal (if the process belongs to the current user). Several signals exist; most commonly used are TERM (a request to terminate gracefully) and KILL (a forced kill).
The command interpreter can also run programs in the background if the command is followed by a “&”. By using the ampersand, the user resumes control of the shell immediately even though the command is still running (hidden from the user; as a background process). The jobs command lists the processes running in the background; running fg %job-number (for foreground) restores a job to the foreground. When a command is running in the foreground (either because it was started normally, or brought back to the foreground with fg), the Control+Z key combination pauses the process and resumes control of the command-line. The process can then be restarted in the background with bg %job-number (for background).

B.1.5. 系统信息:内存、磁盘空间、身份信息

The free command displays information on memory; df (disk free) reports on the available disk space on each of the disks mounted in the filesystem. Its -h option (for human readable) converts the sizes into a more legible unit (usually mebibytes or gibibytes). In a similar fashion, the free command supports the -m and -g options, and displays its data either in mebibytes or in gibibytes, respectively.
$ free
             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:       1028420    1009624      18796          0      47404     391804

The id command displays the identity of the user running the session, along with the list of groups they belong to. Since access to some files or devices may be limited to group members, checking available group membership may be useful.
$ id
uid=1000(rhertzog) gid=1000(rhertzog) groups=1000(rhertzog),24(cdrom),25(floppy),27(sudo),29(audio),30(dip),44(video),46(plugdev),108(netdev),109(bluetooth),115(scanner)
