Overview


Designed as one of the first true textbooks on how to use the UNIX operating system and suitable for a wide variety of UNIX-based courses, UNIX and Shell Programming goes beyond providing a reference of commands to offer a guide to basic commands and shell programming. Forouzan/Gilberg begin by introducing students to basic commands and tools of the powerful UNIX operating system. The authors then present simple scriptwriting concepts, and cover all material required for understanding shells (e.g., Regular Expressions, grep, sed, and awk) before introducing material on the Korn, C, and Bourne shells. Throughout, in-text learning aids encourage active learning and rich visuals support concept presentation. For example, sessions use color so students can easily distinguish user input from computer output. In addition, illustrative figures help student visualize what the command is doing. Each chapter concludes with problems, including lab sessions where students work on the computer and complete sessions step-by-step. This approach has proven to be successful when teaching this material in the classroom.

Editorial Reviews

This text introduces UNIX to computer science majors and nonmajors, covering basics, simple scriptwriting concepts, and writing shell programs. Material progresses from file systems, shells, filters, and communications, to Korn shell programming and C shell programming. No knowledge of UNIX is assumed, although the reader should be computer literate. Learning features include summaries, questions, exercises, and lab sessions. Many tables, scripts, and code examples are included. The authors are affiliated with De Anza College. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
