Scripting help....


.....OK, I've been switched to a new department at work and am totally clueless when it comes to scripting in bash. When I told them I was a fast learner, I didn't think they'd throw me into the deep end of the pool so fast.

So to make a long story short. What is a great book to start learning scripting in bash? My supervisor already gave me a simple task to do. Conceptually it sounds quite easy in my head, but actually writing out a script is a bit more daunting and complexed than I first thought.

So a good book thats easy to learn from and understand!!!!

And a big THANK YOU from MANY members here, that you're asking for information, rather than a hand-out and someone to write your script for you.

PLEASE post if you've got any problems with what you write....we'll be happy to help.
