Linux Runs on Text: Understanding & Handling Text

,----[ Quote ]
| This month, as another part of the series about using text on Linux systems, 
| we’ll introduce “plain text” and how you can restructure it. We’ll see how to 
| identify text from different systems (Unix, DOS, Mac) and to convert text 
| between systems. The article ends with some examples, and there’ll be lots 
| more next month.    
| 
| If you’re used to clicking on files to view and edit them, you’ll probably 
| find some new tools and concepts here. Gurus, please have a look at the main 
| example and be sure it’s familiar.

Geek to Live: The command line comeback

,----[ Quote ]
| The advent of the Graphical User Interface (GUI) forever
| revolutionized personal computing. A windowed system with point
| and click icons made computers usable for anyone who couldn't deal
| with a black screen and a prompt waiting for arcane textual commands.
| But in recent years, this enormous interface change is coming full
| circle. Amongst power users - and more and more, regular Joe's - the
| command line is making a comeback in modern web and desktop
| applications.

Well, all I have to do at the login screen is to type in ">console" and 
I'm in pure text mode.
