How many things are wrong with this request? If you don't know anything
about Unix (-style) programming and computing environments, why are you
trying to use one? Do you have a specific goal?
Unix ain't exactly new or arcane. There's so very, very much available from
the simplest and most elementary to the most subtle and complex, that the
slightest attempt to find something would having tripping all over it. This
makes it appear that you have not even tried to find out about Unix
If you have no money for books, try Google. If you can afford some paper,
head to a technical bookstore (the "bricks and mortar" kind) and thumb
through some of their Unix introductory texts. If you're nowhere near a
real bookstore, check out on-line book reviews then order one or two from
an on-line bookstore.
Put some effort into it! We don't go in for open-ended tutorials here,
