ProgrammingThis forum is for all programming questions.
The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

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.

Other than 'man bash', can anyone recommend a good bash tutorial (doc, web site, or forums)? Preferably on-line stuff. I'll try to pick up a book at some point.
I understand one can create an interactive script, but the example I saw uses animals. As if one would actually write a script to get an animal from the user! Give me a real-world example of problems scripts like this solve.
This is helpful. Naturally, after I asked the question, then I found some useful links in the "Links" section of this site. Oops. Perhaps if some the Guides and tutorials used more of a problem-solving approach, it would be easier to see other instances how/where I might use a certain script.
