Hey! While learning various linux tools in the past, I made several cheat sheets to speed up the learning process. Recently I decided to put them on my blog.
Here is a link to all the cheat sheets on my blog:
cheat sheets at catonmat (my blog)
They include (some of the links include tutorials, as well):
* awk (awk, nawk and gawk) programming language cheat sheet,
* sed, unix stream editor, cheat sheet,
* ed, interactive unix text editor, cheat sheet,
* perl's special variable cheat sheet,
* perl's pack/unpack and printf/sprintf function cheat sheet,
* screen vt100 terminal emulator cheat sheet,
* bash vi editing mode (readline) cheat sheet, and
* bash emacs editing mode cheat sheet.
Tell me what you think and I hope you find them useful!
ps. I have 5-10 more to publish, if you are interested, check back and possibly subscribe to my posts via rss feed

Thanks for posting these. I'm sure I will use a few of them very soon.
a compilation of all these is very helpful indeed.
I need real, proper pen and paper for this.
Theres a nice Cheat sheet for common commands at FOSSwire.com
Linux Command Cheat Sheet. Found it a while back on lifehacker, it's pretty basic but perfect for newer users.
Thanks a lot to share your work pkrumins, this is very useful in many cases. I even think this should deserve to inaugurate a brand new cheat sheets wiki article !
All design goals must be phrased in such a way that it is hard to use them as slogans to justify stupidity.
I found these Quick Reference Cards to be extremely helpful !

Hi all! I just wrote a another article with a cheat sheet. It's called "The Definitive Guide to Bash Command Line History". This tutorial teaches you how to quickly retrieve and modify commands you executed previously.
It starts by reviewing the keyboard shortcuts for history retrieval in emacs and vi editing modes, then it covers the commands for listing and erasing the history, then it goes into discussing history expansion mechanism - event designators, word designators and their modifiers. Finally the guide lists variables and options to modify the default history behavior.
The cheat sheet comes in PDF, Plain Text ASCII and LaTeX:
* PDF format (.pdf): bash history cheat sheet (.pdf)
* ASCII .txt format: bash history cheat sheet (.txt)
* LaTeX format (.tex): bash history cheat sheet (latex .tex)

Hi all, again!
I just published another article that comes with a cheat sheet.
In this article I implemented various set operations by using awk, comm, sort, uniq, diff, join, head, tail, and other Unix utilities.
The article explains 14 various set operations:
* Set Membership.
* Set Equality.
* Set Cardinality.
* Subset Test.
* Set Union.
* Set Intersection.
* Set Complement.
* Set Symmetric Difference.
* Power Set.
* Set Cartesian Product.
* Disjoint Set Test.
* Empty Set Test.
The article can be read here: Set Operations in Unix Shell
What do you think about it?
Distributing cheatsheets as downloadable files (or online versions) is soo 2006.
I think it's the most useful way to use cheat sheets (you can type things like "cheat sed" in your shell).
I recommend you try to integrate your sheets there. It's an easier way to use them and you'll reach a broader audience.

What a bunch of cheaters we've got here!
My roomates said they were going to get me rims for Christmas, or a CB radio so I can talk to other car beds; that'll be hot. Might get a stereo, too. My sister said I should get an alarm.
I put together a short reference for the text editor Sam a while back.
Nice work, thanks! I don't use perl, but checkout `man perlcheat' for a very concise cheat sheet that does the job.
