Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide v.3.4 released

Mendel Coopers guide to the art of bash shell scripting has been updated. If you use Linux and have not read it yet then we highly recommend that you set aside a day or two to expand your potential.

Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide - An in-depth exploration of the art of shell scripting by Mendel Coopers is a document every Linux user can benefit greatly by reading. It is a great tutorial that starts with the basics and takes the reader step by step to the most advanced features and aspects of shell programming. The advanced part of the title does not mean you are required any kind of experience to find it highly useful, it only hints to what your skills will be if you take the time to read it and try out the commands and examples explained for yourself. As the introduction warns, "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."

The Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide was first released in 2000 and has grown to become a very mature and interesting document that now includes a very broad range of good, well-documented examples for doing basic as well as advanced tasks. It is written by Mendel Cooper, who describes himself as a programming consultant, Linux system administrator, freelance writer, and a German-to-English technical translator. He as written a broad range of Linux documentation, howtos and other interesting articles like a HOW-2 Meet Women.
