From the Back Cover
"This book is full of useful examples which will benefit anyone interested in programming in KornShell, especially novices."-David Korn, AT&T Bell Labs, Creator of KornShell
The KornShell is the most important shell or interface, for the 1990's. It runs on the UNIX, OSF-1, MS-DOS, OS/2, and VMS operating systems. It supports every feature of the Bourne shell, and incorporates many of the good C shell features. If you program, you need the KornShell. If you want to learn the KornShell, you need this book.
Barry Rosenberg makes learning and using the KornShell easy by writing in a light, humorous style. The book is packed with short non-trivial examples of shell scripts. Common programming pitfalls and their solutions are boldly highlighted in BEWARE sections throughout. Many chapters begin with sections of helpful hints for new programmers and for experienced programmers.
Among its key features, the book:
- illustrates pattern matching
- focuses on string manipulation
- details inheritance
- includes a quick reference of KornShell statements

ever seen, or ANY shell programming, for that matter.
I have a hard time keeping track of my copy at work,
because my co-workers are always borrowing it. We just
looked it up here so they could buy their own copies and
leave mine alone!
This book is for experienced programmers as well as
beginners. It's a terrific reference.
