This lively, irreverent book gives straighforward advice on the best way to perform any task in the UNIX environment. Regardless of the UNIX version used by the reader, John Montgomery unlocks the mysteries of the file system and covers all the essentials for exploiting the power of the UNIX operating system. For practical advice on everything from customizing any UNIX environment, to preventing and surviving common UNIX disasters, this book is fun for serious users.

Book News Annotation:

Offers tricks of the trade for taming this "problem child" of operating systems. Covers UNIX text editors, file management, using and abusing UNIX security, access the Internet, and shell programming. Appendices offer troubleshooting advice and perl scripts.

You'll find serious information on getting the most out of the parts of UNIX you use every day, as well as detailed advice on working better and faster, whatever flavor of UNIX you're stuck with... uh, prefer. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll buy copies for every room in the house. (NOTE TO
