As far as scripting goes, depends which lang you mean. As an example, you can usually find ksh & bash on most versions of Linux and on later versions of HP (I think ?).
Similarly, Perl is usually avail on both.

All posix commands are supposed to be the same. Some may have small variations and it may depend on the installed command that you need. If you know the unix commands you pretty much know linux.

Here's a good primer on BASH scripting.

You can find other versions (*.pdf, etc.) here.
