Linux is a popular operating system nowadays. It’s not just for “geeks.” Rather, it’s becoming more and more popular among Android users. To that end, the fact that it’s free and can be used to compile a ROM or gunzip a kernel definitely helps. But for new users, Linux isn’t particularly easy to master—especially if you’re trying to accomplish some more advanced tasks. Thus, many new users need a guide that details all the relevant commands. And naturally, a great place for such a guide would be on your Android device, which is presumably sitting right next to your computer monitor.
XDA Forum Member iamnewplus wrote a handy application that contains a short list of Linux functions, as well as commands to trigger some basic and more advanced functions. And since Android is based on Linux, a large portion of these commands can be used on our favorite mobile OS. The application is easy to use and saves you from unnecessary searching to find your answer.
You can get started by visiting the application thread. If you are just beginning your journey with Linux, head over there and prepare to learn some basics._________
