Advanced Bash Scripting Guide 5.5 reviewDownload
This tutorial assumes no previous knowledge of scripting or programming, but progresses rapidly toward an intermediate/advanced level
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.
Advanced Bash Scripting Guide 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.
What's New in This Release:
This is a bugfix and clarification update.
The "Subshells" chapter has been updated (much-need clarification).
Some new material added: a couple of small example scripts and some definitions.
A couple of exercises have been added in the "Exercises Appendix."
There are some bugfixes.
