How do we operate pineapple from terminal connection/shell

How do we learn how to operate the pineapple from putty/command line? I only recently learned that there was a "macchanger" program already installed on the pineapple. How can I see all the executable programs already installed on the pineapple? I would also like to learn about shell scripts and stuff. Also, how does the linux filesystem work? I see all those folders, and they are nothing like windows. PS. we need more videos!

Let me add that I already know how to connect via putty, etc, just need help learning the linux commands available to us.

When you say you'd like to learn about shell scripts, what do you mean? Do you want to learn how to write them? Basically, shell scripts are used to automate a specific process. Here's a script I wrote that creates a fake access point with airbase-ng. It asks a series of configuration questions, and then it creates the fake access point based on your preferences. I created the script as an example for some friends, and included my notes in the comments. It may help you understand bash scripting a little better.

As far as using the command line, what do you want to learn to do? Navigate the file system, start/ stop infusions, etc.?

chriswhat: When you say you'd like to learn about shell scripts, what do you mean? Do you want to learn how to write them?

I would ultimately like to be able to control everything on the pineapple via command line, there are a lot of commands built in though, and I don't know where to find the ones that are installed. Man pages will also be a problem, considering the pineapple doesn't have any, but that should be solvable just by using a Linux VM.

Foxtrot: If you like, I'll make a nice wiki page for use over ssh later

A wiki over the scripting and command line concepts would be nice, but I already know how to connect via putty if that's what you are asking. I need help purely with what commands are available via bash.

I too am still learning Linux and I got to say that the way I have learned the command line is by messing around with Linux on a virtual machine. I would recommend Debian since you have to install it use the command line instead of a graphical user interface. I had no experience what so ever in Linux so I would just look it up on how to do it when I got stuck. I have also learn with a Raspberry Pi.

Anyways I will be getting my Pineapple in a few days so will be following this thread and I'm willing to help out.

Slackware, in my opinion was a great starting point for me to learn linux. I accidently wondered into a Linux Users Group meeting at my local coffee shop when i was in middle school. from that point forward it has been linux. I tend to go between the flavors for one reason or another.
