You can learn Perl, Python or Ruby instead of shell scripting.

Hi,

Rute Tutorial & Exposition as pointed out by chrism01 would be a good start.

Just a few links to aid you to gaining some understanding. For Bash scripting I would start at 4,5 &6 while the other links will enhance your experience;



1 Linux Documentation Project
2 Rute Tutorial & Exposition
3 Linux Command Guide
4 Bash Beginners Guide
5 Bash Reference Manual
6 Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide
7 Linux Newbie Admin Guide
8 LinuxSelfHelp
9 Utimate Linux Newbie Guide

The above links and others can be found at 'Slackware-Links'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!
