Appendix B: Glossary of Linux Terms

A P P E N D I X  B

Glossary of Linux Terms

This appendix provides brief explanations of common terms used in the Linux and UNIX environments. These include technical terms, as well as conventions used in the Linux community. Because of space limitations, this glossary is somewhat selective but still should prove a lasting reference as well as a helpful guide for those new to Linux.

Cross-referenced terms are highlighted in italics.
