Too many italic word

Too many italic word! Is it legal ? I do not find any text supports it in Help: Editing. -- Acgtyrant (talk) 15:50, 16 September 2013 (UTC)

Section Reorganization

I was thinking of adding descriptions of a few more commands here. Before doing that, i would like to group similar commands together into broad topics. While the current alphabetic ordering is fine if you want to quickly look up a command, i think helpful for beginners if the information is presented in a more structured manner.

I was thinking of using the following structure:

1 directory navigation
ls
mkdir

2 file manipulation
dd
mv
rm
shred

3 text processing
cat
grep
iconv
sed
seq

4 pagers
less
vim as alternative pager

5 help & search
locate
man

6 jobs
cron

7 networking
ip

8 security
sudo
permissions related utilities
