1) i would like to know how can i convert a pdf document to html pages.
I think there's an application called pdf2html. Find out what the
package management system is on your distribution. For Fedora Core it's
yum search pdf2html
and see what you get.
2) When ever i want to change the format of graphics i simply give
command of mv like mv test.png test.gif and it converts the format
mv doesn't do any conversion. It only renames the file. Linux doesn't
care (generally) about the extension of files. It's not windows. If you
rename file.jpg to file.png, it's still a Jpeg file, just called .png.
It may open okay (because most image applications will read the data to
find out what it is rather than use the filename). If you want proof:
Get a jpg file.
mv filename.jpg filename.png
It'll still tell you that the file is a jpeg.
3) how can i set my class path i mean not a user path a global path so
every user can use java without exporting a path?
This depends on what shell they use. If they're using bash, you can set
it in /etc/profile. There's equivalents for ksh, zsh, tcsh, etc, but I
don't know them.
4) If i am on some network and other machines knows my address then why
the bandwith thing comes from ISP and why do they offer uplink ?
The bandwidth available to you is the smallest in the chain between you
and the server you're talking to. Think of it as roads. If you drive
from Dublin to Galway, some of the roads are motorway, some are dual
carriageway, and some are single carriageway. Some go through villages.
So you can't get the cars through at the speed of a motorway all the
way. Same with your computer. The network connection of your computer is
probably 10 or 100 megabit, and your internet connection is between
50kilobit and 1 megabit. So you can't go any faster than your internet
They offer an uplink, because otherwise you wouldn't be able to send
data. But most people download more than they send, so the speeds are
5) Is it not possible that i can get connected to internet without my
isp like my own ip address and who assign ips to everyone on internet.
You can't get connected to the internet without an internet provider. As
for who assigns ips to everyone on the internet. IANA give IPs to
regional internet registries, who allocate them to local internet
registries, who assign them to customers. I suggest
