Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

after login in my aix session, no value is being populated in REAL_USER.
i checked the /etc/setenv_user file and found the following line
REAL_USER=`/bin/usr -uid` (some similar line, i have forgotten as i am not
export REAL_USER with my system now)
I ran the script setenv_user with ksh -x (we use korn shell) for debugging purpose.
i could see that atleast inside the script the required value is getting populated in REAL_USER. However, after running the script when i give the command "echo $REAL_USER", it displays me no value.

so sorry, it seems that by mistake i gave some what wrong information.
the exact line in my /etc/setenv_user script is
The baffling thing is that REAL_USER is getting populated in
development region and the production region. However, it is not
getting populated in QA region. I hope this will provide some more insight
into the problem
