System administrators, software developers, quality assurance engineers and others working on a Linux system need to work from the command line in order to be effective. Linux is famous for its huge number of command line utility programs, and the programs themselves are famous for their large numbers of options, switches, and configuration files. But the truth is that users will only use a limited (but still significant) number of these utilities on a recurring basis, and then only with a subset of the most important and useful options, switches and configuration files. This book cuts through all the noise and shows them which utilities are most useful, and which options most important. And it contains examples, lots and lots of examples. programmability. Utilities are designed, by default, to work wtih other utilities within shell programs as a way of automating system tasks. This book contains a superb introduction to Linux shell programming. And since shell programmers need to write their programs in text editors, this book covers the two most popular ones: vi and emacs.

Looks very daunting. The first chapter is kinda dull for me, as an experienced Linux user. But scrolling through, I quickly came upon sed, which I glanced through and taught me some new things. I won't remember it all, but I'll know what I can use sed for. I learned how to select rows based on columns, which I've wanted to do multiple times in the past! It's practical in the sense that, if you have a topic you want to learn about and need a good tutorial to get started, this seems like a very good place to start.
