Recommended BASH Programming BOOK


Hi,

I was just looking for some input on some good BASH Shell Programming/Scripting Books before I purchase one or two.

I'm looking for a good comprehensive book, that covers from the everything, from start to finish, including advanced techniques.

It would also be nice if it included chapters on other good utilities like sed, awk, expect, etc...

There's just so many out there, I just want to know what others think. I like the huge amounts of info on the net, but I also like a good book to, easier to find what you need if everything is all together...


Jeff

Beginning Linux Programming

no need to create 2 threads btw.
