5.0 out of 5 stars Of the two books that I never shelve, this is one. 8 Mar. 2000
By Mark Farnsworth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a PC Windows programmer suddenly thrust into the UNIX world, I felt like I was lost in "a dark and dreary wilderness." With this book at my side, the daily mechanics of the UNIX world quickly became second nature to me. Especially well-thumbed sections so far: Unix Commands, Bourne and Korn shell, vi (this section alone justifies the purchase of the book), and make. By the way, the other book I never put away is a monumental and indispensible desk reference called "Advanced Programming in the UNIX Environment" by W. Richard Stevens.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unix in a Nutshell 28 April 2000
By NextCard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a Windows user thrust into the UNIX world, I felt lost. With this book the daily mechanics of the UNIX world quickly became easier. Especially well-thumbed sections for: Unix Commands, Bourne and Korn shell, and vi (this section alone justifies the purchase of the book). Very complete, detailed reference of Unix commands in an easy to find & read format. I use it often.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 5 Mar. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The book concentrates on the various shell environments in UNIX. It's terse explanations keep the size of the book down, while at the same time relating the necessary information to the shell programmer. I refer to the book often when I'm writing shell scripts.
There are sections of the book that deal with some of the most mystical utilities of UNIX, like sed and awk. But I don't feel that I have enough spiritual prowess to learn these utilities. So I haven't ventured into those sections of the book.
