    Useful Linux book


    Thought I'd recommend a book about Linux which I've just bought. It's very good:

    'Beginning Linux Programming' by Neil Matthew and Richard Stones. Published by John Wiley and Sons Inc./ ISBN 0764544977.

    It has an excellent chapter on shell scripting. The rest is mainly to do with C programming in one way or another. Not really a newbie's book, but great for reference, well laid out and even I can follow most of it. Not cheap though (unless you buy it online) and big enough to stand on and look over walls

    That's cool...

    This book has got the best intro. to shell scripting I can find. I read it through and then went and wrote a script to handle mplayer in the shell, so instead of typing mplayer -dvd 1 -chapter 1 I just type 1, or 2 etc. Thinking of putting a gui on this just for phun, 'cos all my dvds start up differently. It even shows you how to script a complete database, and how to write a server in C (about 30 lines of code... at least to start with). It's very good indeed
