Why this site ?

I love Linux, and its community. So I thought, let's be helpful to them !

Linux' Man pages are great. But it drastically lacks examples. And examples are the best way to start using a command ! You can see the most common usage and get the solution of your problem without going through all the options

But each time I needed some examples, they was scattered all over the internet in old sites with bad layout from the 2000's .

This site has thus been created to help people find great examples easily.

Now it can help you find the right command through searching or even by browsing categories.

Great, isn't it ?

Search commands straight from your browser's search bar

Did you know you can add Linux Commands Examples to your search bar ?

Firefox : click on the google icon, just on the right of your address bar. Then select "Linux Commands Examples" at the end.

Convenient, isn't it ??
