Linux Much of Linux system administration involves tediously combing through plain-text configuration files. Fortunately, Linux has a rich array of UNIX-derived data extraction utilities, including head, tail, grep, egrep, fgrep, cut, paste, join, awk, and more. This article uses real-world examples that show how these simple command-line programs can make you a better sysadmin. Also look at each data extraction utility and its options, and learn how to apply them to typical day-to-day work files.

RE[4]: GNU?

Member since:

The original point is that these tools are not only available on Linux. Even if you're only talking about the GNU versions of these tools. You could do the exact same thing on BSD, Windows with Cygwin, any commercial UNIX, Syllable and a whole bunch of other OSes that are not Linux. It's like calling X11R6 "The Linux GUI".
