I thought I’d learn some more about Linux in my spare time with a book titled “LINUX & UNIX Programming Tools”, but two of the questions I can’t answer.
1. What are hidden files? What are the names of the hidden files that are executed when you log on to a LINUX system?
2. Give a command line to display the types of all the files in the personal directory in your home directory whose filenames do not start with a, k, G, or Q and in which the third letter in the name is not a digit and not a letter (uppercase or lowercase).
If anyone could help me with this dang problem, I’d appreciate it.
