Announcing the version 2.7 release of the "Advanced Bash Scripting Guide."
This e-book tutorial and reference is the equivalent of a 556-page print
book.

With 293 illustrative examples, the book covers virtually every aspect of
scripting.

This e-book now contains printable reference cards, just like commercially
available computer tutorials.

The author invites comparisons with any of the commercially printed books on
shell scripting. His aim was to write "best of category" documentation.

          "This  tutorial  assumes  no previous knowledge of
           scripting or programming, but progresses rapidly  toward an
           intermediate/advanced level of instruction ...all the while
           sneaking in little snippets of UNIX wisdom and lore. It serves
           as a textbook, a manual for self-study, and  a  reference
           and source of knowledge on shell scripting techniques. The
           exercises and heavily-commented  examples invite active reader
           participation, under the premise that the only way to really
           learn scripting is to write scripts."

         This means the book is free and freely distributable.

Thank you VERY much, aw/Mendel and the gang.

Stephane Chazelas sent a long list of corrections, additions, and example
scripts. More than a contributor, he has, in effect, taken on the role of
editor for this document. Merci beaucoup!

One of the "resident gurus" here, for any newcomers.

And Peter Tillier contributed too.

   Please correct this (from
   <http://www.tldp.org/LDP/abs/html/histcommands.html>:)

Unfortunately, the Bash history tools find no use in scripting.

   Not all features, but history can be used.
