Not skills, but knowledge of why some things in Unix are the way they are:

o why a memory access violation is reported as "segmentation fault" or
"bus error", and the difference between the two

o why CTRL/D is used to end a shell command line session

o why CTRL/S and CTRL/Q are used for flow control in a shell command
line session

o why an application memory dump after an application crash is called
a core file
