I’ve found some interesting little bits that make an interesting introduction to the command line. They’re simple to use on their own, but with the addition of a pipe (the | symbol next to the Z key) it’s possible to use them to display results in a more impressive fashion.

To install, use the following:

sudo apt-get install cowsay
sudo apt-get install figlet
sudo apt-get install toilet
sudo apt-get install boxes
sudo apt-get install espeak
sudo apt-get install fortune

The attached files show how to use each of these. Alternatively a manual for each of the commands can be shown with the man command – eg:

man figlet
