I've used this book both as a beginner to unix and as a unix system programmer 10 years later. I would not do shell programming without it and an appropriate O'Reilly 'Unix in a nutshell' book. It is designed to be read end to end, introducing new topics bit by bit and expanding on them using numerous excellent examples which grow in complexity as the book progresses. This does give rise to my one complaint which is that while it is filled with useful tables and charts detailing various command options, etc., it can be difficult to find a particular table using the index since topics are spread throughout the book. Desipite this minor agravation, this book is in my list of 'top 10' must have unix programming books.

I bought this book back in 1989 when I first got involved with Unix systems. Since this date, I have bought many computer books (other Unix books, NT, RDBMS, Domino, Java, HTML, XML etc etc) but this book remains one of my all-time favorites.
It is pitched just at the right level with very good examples and a good index. I'm not suprised there has not been a new edition since it's 1986 first print; the Anderson's got it right first time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best beginners' Unix and C Shell guide 18 Sep 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
If you are new to Unix, this book has everything you need to know and answers more of your questions than other books. It's incomplete in the sense that after reading this book, you just think you are ready to know more.

Most comprehensive C shell book. Examples are not too long but there are a sufficent number of applicable examples. Most importantly, the there are few if any errors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Be literate, know your c shell (csh) 30 Sep 2003
By bernie TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
I used this book to learn more than just the fundamentals of C shell programming. Some time it is more efficient to switch to or supplement with the C shell and save many borne shell steps to accomplish the same process. The C shell environment is robust. What the C shell is not is intuitive. Therefore, you need this book for any serious scripting. This is also the basis of tcsh
