We are a US-based Web hosting company looking to improve the documentation we provide for our customers using UNIX and Linux from the command line.
We're looking for technical articles that describe a variety of UNIX/Linux utilities, their uses, options, and arguments.
We need coverage of the following five topics:
1) Getting around the filesystem using cd, pwd, and ls. Please cover navigation shortcuts such as "cd .." and be thorough about the options for ls.
2) Getting help using man and apropos
3) Viewing files with less, more, and cat, along with commonly used commands for each.
4) Using find
5) Copying files securely using scp
There is no minimum length, and it is acceptable for the articles to be brief, as long as the topic is covered adequately. Tone should be informative but not dry.
In your proposal, please tell us your potential writing capacity (short articles per week) if you would like to be considered for additional articles.
There is an abundance of information...
