Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's simple: you need to know how to work with the bash shell if you want to get to the heart of Mac OS X, Linux, and other Unix systems. Updated for the most recent version of bash, this concise little book puts all of the essential information about bash at your fingertips. You'll quickly find answers to annoying questions that always come up when you're writing shell scripts — What characters do you need to quote? How do you get variable substitution to do exactly what you want? How do you use arrays? — and much more.

If you're a user or programmer of any Unix variant, or if you're using bash on Windows, you'll find this pocket reference indispensable. This book covers:

  • Invoking the Shell
  • Syntax
  • Functions
  • Variables
  • Arithmetic Expressions
  • Command History
  • Programmable Completion
  • Job Control
  • Shell Options
  • Command Execution
  • Coprocesses
  • Restricted Shells
  • Built-in Commands

Book News Annotation:

Intended for Unix and Linux users, this handbook provides 282 bash shell solutions for automating repetitive tasks, making simple substitutions, generating output, and customizing the computer environment to be more familiar. More advanced chapters explain how to find files, work with dates and times, load an MP3 player, parse arguments and text, write secure shell scripts, configure bash behavior, and perform administrative tasks. An appendix lists bash values, settings, operators, commands, and variables. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
