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.

iam having a problem while using the urlwatch utility in linux
file pathname is /home/etika/Desktop/etikaa.txt
when ownership is tomcat it doesnot run
when ownership is etika(which is the user on the system through which iam running my script
why the file which is passed to urlwatch is not accepted if that's file owner is tomcat6 it gives the following error
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/urlwatch", line 221, in <module>
for job in handler.parse_urls_txt(urls_txt):
File "/usr/share/urlwatch/urlwatch/handler.py", line 128, in parse_urls_txt
shelljob_errors.append('%s not owned by %s' % (urls_txt, os.getlogin()))
OSError: [Errno 22] Invalid argument
but when the ownership of the file is changed to etika it run smoothly
why urlwatch does not run when the file containing the urls is owned by tomcat with full 777 permission but run with etika (user on the system) through this iam running my shell script
Looking at the trackback, it seems to me that the utility is testing to see if the owner of the file is the same as the run-as ID, and throwing an error if they don't match. So if that's a dependency for running the utility, you'd have to make them match.
If the file needs to be owned by tomcat6, then the solution is to run the utility as tomcat6.
