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.

In our system , there are some batch job will only be run at the last day of each month , but the last day is different ( eg. 31th for Jan , 28th or 29th for Feb , 31th for Mar ) depends on the month, could advsie how can I check if it is the last day of the month ? can advise how to write the script ?
First you ll hav to define wat is d end day for each month. (not for all months. there are only 4 types of end dates).
if you treat months as 1,2...,12 then set the end date also by considering the year (if it is a leap year or not).
this is only one way.
I think writing a script for that is not tedious. If you hav to run a particular application on the end date, use scheduling package like crontab.
