Very helpful book. I first tried using unix a year ago, it seemed really hard. Now after i read this book i understand how to use most of the commands in the shell terminal even though im only 12 years old! Really.
P.S. : No, I am not a nerd.

5.0 out of 5 stars good book July 26 2003
Format:Paperback
it's quite useful on getting you started on shell programming. As always you'll end up using the man pages to find out various other options and what not. It definitely gets you started on the right track it is NOT a "bible", however. After the book gets you going you can just continue on using man pages and other online help though.

2.0 out of 5 stars not what i expected ...... July 16 2003
Format:Paperback
Great for the first time shell user, but if you know your way around @ all ....... you'll find more info in the man pages --- this is one of those long, drawn out lesson by lesson books.....
By the end of the book --- you really haven't learned more than you could from any of the various "bible or unleashed" books ... except this is non-distro specifac .....
Waste of Money

5.0 out of 5 stars Great way to learn shell scripting April 20 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I took a class in shell scripting and learned almost nothing...
I tried a couple of other books and then was lucky enough to findthis one.
Hey, it's short, it's clear and it has a few questions at the end of every chapter that let you test your knowledge. It's also organized so you can learn one thing at a time, which is different from others that throw lots of things at you, but don't explain them all till later.
Anyway, forget the rest. Just get this little, inexpensive book. It will get you up to speed fast.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressed July 13 2002
By Dan - Published on Amazon.com
This is probably one of the best books by Sams that I've read. If you want to start shell programming, you've picked up the perfect book, even if you're new to Unix. It starts off by first getting you familiar with the basic Unix commands: ls, pwd, cp, mv, cat, etc. and telling you the basics of Unix and Shells. Then it goes over file systems and modifying attributes. Later when you're comfortable, it holds your hand through the shell programming syntax, logic, substititution, regular expressions, and essential tools such as awk and sed. This book contains other gems and snippets that have helped me through many projects. Overall good buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT tutorials that will have you scripting in no time! May 27 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I've spent the last month learning the basic commands of Unix. Where the real challenge of System Administration comes in is writing scripts. Never has there been a book so useful! Better than O'Reilly shell books..

5.0 out of 5 stars A solid introduction into shell scripting March 3 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This book provides a very good foundation so that one may learn Unix shell scripting. It also allows one to understand the more advanced books, which is very important. I thought there were some sections of the book that were a bit sketchy in their explanation. For example, the no-op operator (:) was not explained to my liking (although a fairly good attempt was made). Overall, however, the beginner to Unix will learn much from this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best shell scripting guide since Kochan Sept. 16 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Glad to see the other good reviews. I was impressed and wanted to see what others had to say.
This is the way it should be done. Definitely appreciated the emphasis on the bash shell and the inclusion of other useful tools. Pleasantly surprised by the depth and quality of the examples...this is one of the best book in SAMS catalog. Author also had a chapter or two in Kao's Special Edition Using Unix, which was a solid book even though it is a major doorstop in size. Looking forward to more titles from Veeraraghavan.
It looks like the quality of non-O'Reilly titles may be improving after all...
