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 am fetching some information from the webserver log and writing to a output file in shell script.
However, I need the information in the output file to be converted/present in a CSV format.
Can anyone please let me know how can I get this conversion done in Linux?
You need to provide more information. Your script for fetching logs and a sample of some log entries would be a start. Also, post what you have tried to write so far. Generally the forum etiquette is to first produce what you have attempted and then seek feedback for improvement.
There's an example using the OFS awk variable to change the output field separator to a comma which will generate CSV output. The tee command will write the CSV data to a file as well as stdout. The tr command will translate all commas to spaces which then gets written to a normal log file.
