If you want to code in the Korn shell, have this book in your arsenal.
It does not make a good general shell programming reference.

The book takes you though Korn shell basics from answer what a shell is to using files, I/O, and character quoting.
From there it goes into command line editing, customizing your environment, and into basic programming. Once through that you learn flow control, arrays, advanced I/O, and process handling.
Finally you learn how to debug the script you just wrote.
As a reference manual this book is average. It's not meant to be a typical "nutshell" book and shouldn't be treated as one.
The bottom line? Buy this book if you are truly interested in learning how to program in the Korn shell.
I picked this book up as a supplement to learning UNIX. The index proved helpful when I was learning a new command or searching for a solution to my problem. I like the book because it is easier to use than trying to scour the web for solutions. This book will at least narrow the task and help you know what to look for on the web.
