a good book for a higher level
Well im new to the forum and i hope to be here awhile and learn and maybe one day help...but onto my question.
Im currently a junior in college, working on my Computer Science degree, i have basically no experiance in the linux environment or with the commands.
I was wondering since the class i am taking now deals with Computer Graphics and coding in a linux environment but there is no part of this class devoted to learning how to use the linux environment. I have taken it upon myself to try and learn it on my own, or begin learning it on my own.
My actual question is what would be a good book that would teach me the basics, while incorporating things that i will find useful after i become efficient in the Linux Environment. As well as maybe encorporating some things such as information on shell programming.
Would this be a good choice:
A Practical Guide to Linux(R) Commands, Editors, and Shell Programming
Your help is greatly appreciated.
