A Linux command is an instruction provided by the user to execute a certain task, utility, or program in Linux.
We use commands in place of Graphical User Interface as an easy and fast way to interact with the system.
The commands are typed and executed in a Linux Terminal. For example, by typing “ls” and executing the command using the “enter/return” key, we get the list of directories on the system as shown below:
ls Desktop Pictures Documents Public Downloads Templates Music Videos
Linux Commands provide greater control over the system. They are easy to use and have extensive documentation.
Note: All Linux commands are case-sensitive.
The basic Linux commands and their explanation are available here:
