Overview

Following the common-sense O'Reilly style, Mac OS X Tiger in a Nutshell cuts through the chaff and gives you practical details you can use every day. Everything you need to know about the Unix side of Mac OS X has been systematically documented in this book.

Mac OS X Tiger in a Nutshell offers a complete overview of Mac OS X Tiger (Version 10.4), focusing on the BSD Unix layer. This book familiarizes you with over 300 of Tiger's Unix commands, the Terminal application, file management, system and network administration issues, and more.

Completely revised for Mac OS X Tiger, this book offers:

  • The most complete and thorough coverage of Mac OS X's Unix commands you'll find anywhere (even in the system)

  • An overview of basic system and network administration features, including coverage of NetInfo and Directory Services

  • An introduction to using Mac OS X's Unix command-line interface, the Terminal application

  • An overview of Mac OS X's Unix text editors, including vi and Emacs

  • Information on shell syntax variables for Tiger's default Unix shell, bash

Each command and option in this book's Unix Command Reference has been painstakingly tested and checked against Tiger; even the manpages that ship with Mac OS X can't compete in accuracy. Mac OS X Tiger in a Nutshell is the most comprehensive quick reference on the market and is a must for any serious Mac user.
