To know Linux is to love Linux, aficionados would surely agree, but does one *have* to know Linux just to be able to use it at all? That question has made quite a splash in the blogosphere. "Lately, I've been noticing stories about how to use Linux you need to know half-a-hundred Linux shell commands and the like, began Steven J.
The command line is a powerful way to interact with a Linux computer. Instead of using the mouse, you just type commands into the shell. (The shell is a blank window where you type in your commands.)

Yesterday we introduced your to Linux command line console or shell in our previous post. To read that post, click here.

What is the Linux shell? What does it do? How can I interact with it on my GNU/Linux operating system? Those are all good questions.
I discovered Turnkey Linux after it was recommended to me by a colleague from University. After looking at the website, I was immediately impressed, this seemed like a perfect way for someone to easily and quickly set up a Linux hosting server without having to learn all of the commands needed to set it up using the command line.
Current tutorials i have found thus far use embedded SLON commands in Shell Script files to setup the required configuration for Slony-I master to slave replication.
For example: Slony-I Setup Tutorial
I was wondering if it was possible to embedd the SLON setup commands and have them called within another language Eg C/C++/Python working within a linux environment?
Suppose I have a server application installed in a few Linux and Windows machines. Now I would like to control it remotely. That is, I would like to start and stop the application, update the application configuration files, reads the logs remotely.
It looks to be easy in the Linux worlds. I can use ssh, scp, and probably nfs to execute commands in remote Linux machines and access their files.
