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.

Hello, all! I'm new around these parts, and just needed some quick help with a shell script.
I'm taking my first intro to linux course and just needed help scripting a simple program.
I need to write a script which accepts any of these three words: "Color, Drink, Animal", and sorts the output accordingly.
So, basically, when I run the program I need it to list like this [1) Color, 2) Drink, 3) Animal], and ask what input. Depending on the input, I need it to locate a file (in this case depending on the input, I want it to read the files color.sh, drink.sh, or animal.sh), and then display what I have written in them.
It was just an assignment from a list of scripts to practice, and this was the final one. I've spent hours on it and I wanted to get some help since through research and my book I haven't been able to get anything to work.
