Unix for Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger : Visual QuickPro Guide (2nd Edition)

This is an extremely easy to understand text. Anyone who has dabbled in any part of the shell will appreciate knowing more. Anyone interested in increasing their AppleScript ability will also enjoy learning how to write their own little shell scripts, so that the do shell script can call a neat little homemade script, and not be such a bulky monster with all sorts of slashes, quotation marks, etc. Mr. Enzer is an excellent writer and his style is very easy to understand. An outstanding addition to any scripter's library.
