File Managing Commands

As a user of a LINUX / UNIX system, dealing with files is a routine task. A considerable proportion of time is consumed working with files. To make the best use of your time, you always need to reduce time spent on file handling. This can be accomplished through efficient use of commands related to file and directory operations. Linux provides a simple and powerful command mechanism. Other uses of file handling commands are for grouping these commands and passing output of one command to another. Operations can be performed on single files or a group of files at the same time.
