Where can I get free tips about Linux shell script programming?
It's not uncommon for me to receive email from people asking for information that's covered in one or more of my books, and this morning I received a message asking about good places to go online to learn more about shell script programming. My answer, of course, is to buy a copy of my best selling book Wicked Cool Shell Scripts, but if that's not in your budget, there's another possibility to explore.
Starting with the August 2004 issue, I am now contributing a monthly column on shell scripting basics to LinuxWorld Magazine called Wicked Cool Linux.
Please take a minute and check out my ever-growing column archive at http://linux.intuitive.com/ and if it looks good, please subscribe to the magazine or at least bookmark the page and come back every month for a new installment of my column.
There are plenty of other online resources too, of course. You need but pop over to Google and search for "unix shell script programming" or "shell scripting tutorial" or "shell scripting guide" (etc etc) to find them.
I'll also recommend another magazine that's now in online form: Unix Review.
