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.

i've been trying to get into shell scripting to make life easier at the command line. i bought a book (Beginning Linux programming 3rd ed) and downloaded all the source for the book from the internet. the prob is none of the shell scripts work. herein lies the dilemma. when i write the scripts myself. they work!!!! with all things being equal, owner, group, permissions, directory etc, i get this message.
: bad interpreter : no such file or directory
when i run the downloaded scripts. mine work just fine. The PATH is set okay by the way.
thanks for giving it a go. but it doesnt matter what the scripts look like. line for line, word for word, space for space. Mine seem to work but the downloaded ones dont!!! i'm fairly conversant in C/C++, so have to say the syntax is correct, as it shows when my code works. i was thinking that maybe the shell is'nt reading into the file to begin with. i was hoping all i would have to do is unset/configure something that has to do with downloaded files from outside of the scripts themselves. Hhhhmmmmmmm!!! what do you think? give me your thoughts anyway, maybe we can come up with something.
