The following are some of the filter commands . Click the commands to see the man page and learn different options. wc-  count number of lines words and characters  cut-   cut the files vertically character or field wise paste- vertically paste two files
head- get lines from the beginning of a file 
tail-get lines from the end of a file sort- sort the files contents grep,egrep,fgrep- search file contents uniq- unique lines from a sorted file join- joining two files tr- translating characters
