Three things come to mind, which would be at/near the top of my list of things to read when wanting to learn bash/shell scripting:

1) Absolute Advanced Bash Scripting Guide.

2) Bash manpage. Type:
Code:
man bash
into your terminal and start reading.

3) Greg's Wiki: http://mywiki.wooledge.org/BashFAQ

Best regards, good luck, and have fun most importantly!

Double posting is posting two threads on the same topic. The LQ rules tell you not to do this. Naturally, this rule extends to more than two posts on the same topic. Also, you still refuse to follow up on your previous threads. Why is that?
