You can make UNIX friendlier, more personal, and even more powerful. It just takes a little shell scripting skill, and a little inspiration. This book delivers both.
You’ll find 101 fascinating, non-trivial scripts here (most Bourne, with a little bash). There are scripts for sysadmins (including a disk quota system that automatically emails violators). There are loads of UNIX tweaks, including “unremove,” and a more useful ls. There are dozens of web scripts -- including tools for extracting a page’s URLs, or emailing you when a page changes content, or helping you analyze traffic logs. And for Macfolk, a full chapter of OS X scripts (even one for iTunes). Wicked cool, indeed. Bill Camarda
