    Where is a good place to start learning about the command structure and the command keywords for the OSX terminal? Should I just get a book on UNIX? How different is it from the UNIX command structure? I don't like typing what someone somewhere tells me to type without knowing what I'm doing. I'd like to know what it all means.

    A Unix book could do fine, OSX seems to have most all the commands and programs in it.

    A few Mac sites out there seem to have whipped up command guides or something when OSX came out.

    The O'Reilly books are good. Can't find mine right now, but is has a camel on the cover (I think).
