There are, of course, several versions about this autumn vibes’ topic spreads around the Internet like insects trapped on a spider Web, but you may consider it as another point of view and a different personal style. In this compilation, you will discover all the Computer Science concepts that are used by the Tech Community when they are on a Linux operating system. Newbies are welcome as the explanations are detailed enough to fully understand, such as a free lesson, but with a humorous touch.
Let’s take it slowly. What’s scary about a tail? Probably a four-legged animal and considered a “little ball of fur – purr, purr, purr” like Sheldon Cooper and Penny from The Big Bang Theory Show sang it so well.

By default, tail command prints the last 10 lines and the units used, so number of lines, blocks, and bytes.
By the way, to enhance the scary atmosphere, you can stalk changes made to the file with the f option. This points you in real time what are the modifications’ file content. To leave this feature, just do Ctrl+C and the operation will make you return on the basic Linux terminal.
