Dear All,

I have some exposure to shell scripting. Still trying to understand in a better way. Like looking detailed informations regarding the use of characters like -d, -t, -n kind of stuff. I am using bash. Could some one suggest me any online post where I can refer myself to get more grip.

Thanks in advance,
Ragu.

Try "man" to see all the options that a command accepts.

For example:

man ls

will show all options that the 'ls' command has.
