Advanced Bash Scripting Guide update

Advanced Bash Scripting Guide update

Post by M. Leo Coope » Fri, 07 Sep 2001 05:34:00



Announcing the version 0.5 update of the "Advanced Bash Scripting Guide".

This is a complete ebook (equivalent of 360+ printed pages).

  ====================================================================

  This  document is both a tutorial and a reference on shell scripting
  with Bash. It assumes no  previous  knowledge  of  scripting  or
  programming,  but progresses rapidly toward an intermediate/advanced
  level  of  instruction.  [1]  The  exercises  and heavily-commented
  examples invite active reader participation.

  This project has evolved into a comprehensive book that compares
  favorably with any of the shell scripting manuals in print. It may serve
  as a textbook, a manual for self-study, and a reference and source of
  knowledge on shell scripting techniques.

  ====================================================================

This book is free, and freely distributable under the guidelines of the Linux
Documentation Project (http://linuxdoc.org).

have been possible.

1. Version 1.9 update of "Advanced Bash Scripting Guide"

Announcing the version 1.9 release of the "Advanced Bash Scripting Guide."
This e-book tutorial and reference is the equivalent of a 536-page print book.
With 263 illustrative examples, the book covers virtually every aspect of
scripting.

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."
