Good Book on Shell Scripting?
 
Hi Folks....Can u please suggest some good book on SHELL SCRIPTING! It should have decent amount of explanation in lucid language and with plenty of SHELL SCRIPT examples.....

Try "Linux Shell Scripting with Bash".

There are also plenty of online howto guides - see tldp.org.

tldp.org, as already stated. Often recommended is "Advanced Bash scripting Guide" by Mendel Cooper. It is, however, a real boat anchor.

I would start with:
Bash Guide for Beginners, by Machtelt Garrels (at TLDP)

Classic Shell Scripting, from O'Reilly

Hi.

I second the Classic Shell Scripting.

You might also like the Quigley below. The edition I have is about half the length of the current edition. If you like examples, I think you would like this ... cheers, makyo
