Intended for beginners to the unix or linux worlds, this App is a lightweight reference of commonly used commands, and tools such as 'vi', 'sed', 'perl', and 'awk'. Content is organized into 'Subjects', each containing examples grouped into the 'Sections'.

Subject 'vi' contains reference for the vi editor and contains sections on Cursor Movement, Scrolling, Marking position and moving, Entering Text, Cut, Copy & Paste, Searching and Replacing, and other Miscellaneous examples

    Works in horizontal mode & you make the fonts larger. A lot of great content, including VI, perl, awk and sed.

    No zoom, no way to change font - current font is small and difficult to read. Uninstalled
