Example text

Perhaps an unauthorized user has learned your password and has logged in as you. In the interest of security, advise the system administrator of the circumstances that made you suspicious and change your password (page 37). The usual prompt is a dollar sign ($). Do not be concerned if you have a different prompt; the examples in this book will work regardless of what your prompt looks like. In the previous example the $ prompt (last line) is preceded by the username (max), an at sign (@), the system name (bravo), and the name of the directory Max is working in (max).

Next the system requests the new password. A password should meet the following criteria to be relatively secure. Only the first item is mandatory. It must be at least six characters long (or longer if the system administrator sets it up that way). It should not be a word in a dictionary of any language, no matter how seemingly obscure. It should not be the name of a person, place, pet, or other thing that might be discovered easily. It should contain at least two letters and one digit. It should not be your login name, the reverse of your login name, or your login name shifted by one or more characters.

The following sections discuss some of the places you can look for information on various aspects of Linux. The––help Option Most GNU utilities have a ––help option that displays information about the utility. $cat --help Usage: cat [OPTION] [FILE]...

If the information that ––help displays runs off the screen, send the output through the less pager (page 31) using a pipe: $ls --help | less More information about pipes appears on page 52.
