Universal Command Guide: For Operating Systems

 
9780764548338: Universal Command Guide: For Operating Systems

The ultimate operating system reference: Over 8,000 commands and 57,000 command options from every major operating system--Windows. UNIX. Linux. NetWare. Macintosh. DOS. If you're a systems professional, chances are you're pretty familiar with commands in at least one of these operating systems. But what happens when you need to get up to speed on an operating system you don't know? This ingenious reference will have you up and running in no time. It describes and illustrates every command in every commonly used operating system, and cross-references each command to the equivalent commands in other operating systems. The Universal Command Guide for Operating Systems bridges the gap between all operating systems by cross-referencing commands between the many different operating systems that exist today.

All major operating systems are covered and fully referenced, including IBM AIX 4.3.3; Sun Solaris 7 and 8; Red Hat Linux 7.0; OpenBSD 2.7; NetWare 3.12, 4.11, 5.1, and 6; DOS 6.22; Windows 95, 98, Me, XP, NT 4 Workstation, NT 4 Server, NT 4 Terminal Server, 2000 Professional, 2000 Server, 2000 Advanced Server; and Mac OS 9.1.

About the CD-ROM:
* The UCG Finder--Finds the command you need for any Operating System
* 2000 additional cross-references for Novell, Microsoft, and UNIX/Linux
* All UNIX/Linux shells and internal shell commands cross-referenced.
* VNC Remote Control software, MySQL and other great software for all operating systems.

About the Author: Guy Lotgering (Soraker, Sweden) has worked for many years as a consultant working on Novell, Microsoft, and UNIX networking systems.

Review:

Networks just aren't homogeneous anymore, despite the best efforts of operating system vendors to bring about the contrary. Many network administrators need to know how to get around in half a dozen operating systems or more; itinerant consultants find themselves in the same boat. Universal Command Guide for Operating Systems breaks new ground in the technical-book industry by documenting the interfaces--graphical as well as textual--of eight popular operating systems in one (large) volume. It's a great resource for people who have to hop from Red Hat Linux to AIX Unix (among others) frequently, or who want to use their knowledge of one operating system to help them learn another. In table after table and entry after entry, this book explains how almost every operating system you're likely to find in a modern data center exposes its functions to users and administrators.

It's hardly possible to commend the authorial team enough for the empirical research they did in compiling this book (and it is a tabular compilation, not a tutorial or prose volume of any kind). Over three years they installed all of the covered operating systems on test servers and used custom software to scan the machines for executable commands. They admit to excluding games, device drivers, and a small number of very obsolete commands from their coverage, but issue (in the preface) a challenge to all readers to find a useful command they haven't included. That kind of warranty is very rare in the technical-book industry, and it appears that this book lives up to its authors' boast of true universality.

How does the Universal Command Guide work? Say you know Microsoft Windows, and know that MSCDEX.EXE is key to making a CD-ROM drive accessible. What commands are equivalent in other operating systems? A scan of the cross-reference that opens this book (it lists every command available in every covered operating system next to its parallels in other environments) reveals what the Unixes and NetWare use, and that the Macintosh requires no special command for the purpose at all. If you want to know more about a NetWare 4.11 command, you can flip to the chapter on that operating system for complete coverage of syntax and parameters.

This is a big, supremely useful book, backed by diligent and extensive research. The only way to make it better would be to cover more operating systems (a couple more Linuxes, HP-UX, and Mac OS X would be nice), but that's a feeble criticism. If you understood the point of this book when you read the title, you'll be pleased. It'll satisfy your expectations. --David Wall

Topics covered: Every administrative command in Sun Solaris 7 and 8; IBM AIX 4.3.3; OpenBSD 2.7; Red Hat Linux 7; Novell NetWare 3.12, 4.11, 5.1, and 6; Mac OS 9.1; MS-DOS 6.22; and Microsoft Windows 95 through XP. Every command-line command and many graphical command sequences are covered fully, with information on every parameter and command variation.

From the Back Cover:

"Universal Command Guide can significantly reduce the extent of retraining by providing a solid cross-reference between command sets on a wide variety of operating systems." --Doc D'Errico, Director, eLab EMC Engineering, EMC Corporation
