If you search for “amiga shell guide” on Google (I haven’t tried other search engines such as DuckDuckGo) you will see results from wiki.amigaos.net h
owever, they are defining Amiga shell as OS4.x and there is no mention of classic versions like http://wiki.amigaos.net/wiki/AmigaOS_Manual:_AmigaDOS_Command_Examples (thanks to Daedalus for clarifying). I like the guide below because it also loads well from IBrowse
A good starting point is to go to your C: drawer (cd C:) and list everything there, as the contents make the lion’s share of the commands for your system. Any resource online should provide for these.
- Very little has changed between OS3 and OS4 with respect to the Shell – it’s mostly a few new commands and a few new options on some commands, but the vast majority of that Wiki also applies to 3.x. The changes are really for edge cases and advanced use. I’ve just had a look over http://wiki.amigaos.net/wiki/AmigaOS_Manual:_AmigaDOS_Command_Examples and the details there all apply 100% to OS3 – even the screenshot is OS3 rather than OS4 :)
- Thanks for that Daedalus, that’s very good info. The standard practice in this scenario is to update the question with the new information so I’ll do that.
