Tomorrow my Dad’s second book “Pro Bash Programming: Scripting the GNU/Linux Shell” is released. If you are interested in Shell Scripts it’s probably a worthwhile buy. Even though I don’t write shell scripts I found his first book “Shell Scripting Recipes: A Problem-Solution Approach” fascinating to read. I’m looking forward to reading the new book.
Of course this will renew my interest in shell scripting and if I should get into it more. I don’t run Linux so I’d either have start that or see about working with Microsoft’s PowerShell. Perhaps I should try some of the scripts from the book in ‘PowerShell’ see if they run. I’ll post about my results when I try them.
