Sure!
But how do I get to the next step
Can I do a typical google search from the ping command or do I need to install more softweare like say a web browser or even the softwear manager tool (commonly found on linux mint distro)

IMHO your best next step, to save you pain, would be to install Mint or maybe Windows 10. 8)

you are online!
Read chapter 4 of "Into the Core".
links.tcz is a command line web browser.
You are making progress, you have gone from nothing to getting on line.
Now that you know you can do it, have fun with tiny core while learning.
This is a good thing!

I read chapter 4 on the intor the core thanks! And I tried to follow it though the best I could
I got as far as 4.1 teck load, but I lost it after that
Anyway I think I have installed fire fox, as it said it has installed it (please see the photos attached)

If I have installed it then where has it installed it to? (since this is a live CD) And how do I access it?

Thanks

PS what is tce-ab
tce-ab - Tiny Core Extension: Application Browser?
Is it a site created by tiny core which works like an online libury of programs in the same way that the softwear manager dose for linux mint?

Hello F,

it can be handy to know what  "Internet" means.

INTER-networking.

So, the world contains oceans of "internets"........and one particular one is a gigantic one called the
 "world Wide Web"

Added knowledge........>>> ........an "intranet" is something different where company machines may be linked to a common Master "server" and it serves out web pages but only from "itself".  It's not serving pages to the company client Terminals from the "world wide web"......(just from itself on a "closed" network that isn't
networked--UP to the "world wide web".

Back to "internet" .........INTER-networking.

Yeah, so with reference to this OP  (and subject)............how easy is it to use the internet at command prompt?

Well , the tasks of simply querying the "shell" to see if it returns a hyperTEXT proper URL address and an IP address where it's "address arrangement" indicates it's a true Word Wide Web  IP.

i forget the arrangement.   but the PUBLIC or  PRIVATE  indication (think so) within an IP address will indicate whether "real internet" from the world wide web is present or not.





REMEMBER what's above for reference...........

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

So yeah......another answer to the OP thread ...............>> "could be below"

.....your work assistants and staff of the CORP may have already created "internets" of their own.............it does NOT necessarily mean that those "internets"  WILL be, by default,  connected to the WORLD WIDE WEB---internet.

NO................O___o.............

REmember, an INTERNET is just a cluster of computers ......(likely in STAR linked networked formation)...... located at say some  point "A".......which is then "INTERNET--worked"  to another  group of "star connected networked computers at say point "B"

The link will be one line.....catETHER  ethernet cable...........between the TWO clusters..........

Thanks for reading above and hopefully it helps the forum's Know how.


(can i throw in Ruminating for the Forum below........?)

AN example of an internet "could" be the longest WIRE on earth......which stretches from NEWS CORP HQ in central New York City....USA............to the United Kingdom and the DEVONSHIRE coast .

A........... 5471.77 kilometer(S)...... long..........WIRE.

That submarine atlantic cable...... will likely Link on the idea of INTERNET(s). 

(....the cable carries all of the worlds media information and disseminates it via UPLINKING to "astra satellite fleets etc".....which then distribute this information on the European footprints and to those continents ................to the billions of earth consumers .

Also, an INTERNET  "could"  be the first example at the top there....in say an educational college Classroom (10 meter cable)

thanks

Cee

ps   it helps to appreciate things.......................O___o..........

Hi JBG,
I was under the impression that for some reason, unknown to me, we are staying with the command line interface.
If it is possible, it might be helpful to download and burn a CD with "TinyCore" or "CorePlus". Both have a graphical interface.
Either of these should boot into a graphical environment. If they do not type "startx", no quotes and all lower case to bring up the graphical interface. Firefox will only work in a graphical environment, which is why I had suggested the links web browser.
If you continue with what you have which I am guessing is "Core" then follow the instructions that Leee had posted earlier in this thread.

When running the CD without any persistence established on your hard drive everything is kept in your computers RAM and will be lost when rebooted.

Yes, tce-ab is similar to software manager in mint.

I will not be able to post for a few days but will try to answer you questions more thoroughly when I am able.

All the best,
Joe

I'm not a links user, but I'd guess, from your prompt enter links

yeah...

The Internet (or internet) is the global system of interconnected computer networks that uses the Internet protocol suite (TCP/IP) to communicate between networks and devices. It is a network of networks that consists of private, public, academic, business, and government networks of local to global scope, linked by a broad array of electronic, wireless, and optical networking technologies. The Internet carries a vast range of information resources and services, such as the inter-linked hypertext documents and applications of the World Wide Web (WWW), electronic mail, telephony, and file sharing.



The original posting  question(S) ..........how do you use the internet from the command prompt.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1)........ using the internet for learning from  hypertext  (http) web page document(S)  WWW...........or whatever you want to do with the "internet"  transfer protocol.........tcp-ip  (protocol)......

.............a)  you can start as Tinycore opens it's apps browser ....so you already used the "internet" to do that 
               by typing (i think it's)  "appb" or "appbrowse" or "appbrowser" at the command prompt.
..............b)  Choose a web browser app such as "Links" and install it
..............c)  At the command prompt type "links https://www.bbc.co.uk

2)........or perhaps using  the "internet" TCP/ip  transfer protocol to  GATHER or download a FILE from any other computers........

...............a)  do  (a) above .......
................b) instal  "wget" app
................c)  at the command prompt  type  "wget (and some hypertext link to a file you want to download)

3)........or using the TCPI/IP transfer protocol to make Skype calls.......using the "internet" for that purpose3).

................a)  do (a) in 1
................b)  install an app such as skype
................c)  at command prompt type  "skype"  etc....to start it and make a global audio or video call Live.



thx


cee

I just tried typing links into the command line and pressed enter and the program automaticly loaded ;D
I guess running a program in the shell is as simple as that, or as simple as needs be!

I found the about/ help tutorial so I will give it a read as there is a lot to take in for someone who has never used a web browser in the shell mode before

Thanks
