Most Solaris users rely on electronically published man pages as their command reference -- but these pages are written by a diverse, eclectic set of engineers, and rarely edited sufficiently to serve the needs a broad range of readers. Solaris Reference Guide gives every Solaris user fast access to all the information they need to get results quickly. Solaris Reference Guide starts with a convenient task-list cross-reference that points users to all the related commands they may need to perform a set of tasks, such as printing, file system management, system status, editing, or shell programming. Next, it provides comprehensive information and examples for over 450 Solaris commands. Solaris Reference Guide delivers more than 1,000 pages of rock-solid information that's never been delivered with more clarity, or organized for greater more
