    A book on shell scripting

    I found a reference to this in the forum bulletin. People post from time to time asking if there is a guide to the shell so here are the specs:

    A practical guide to Linux commands, editors and shell programming (3rd edition)
    Mark G Sobell
    Prentice Hall
    ISBN 978-0-13-308504-4

    It has quite a good review on Slashdot.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    Good reference Haz. Here is a link to an online book that can also be useful for newbies: Linux Shell Scripting Tutorial - A Beginner's handbook
