This book offers a thorough, tutorial-style introduction to UNIX and Linux both for those starting computing for the first time, and for those familiar with computing but wanting to learn more about UNIX.
The text assumes no prior knowledge of programming, nor any experience of using computers. It covers the basic aspects of UNIX necessary to get started, including details of installing Linux on individual PCs and using simple commands, as well as advancing to a more rigorous description of the very powerful tools that UNIX provides. These aspects include shell programming and the UNIX tools Awk and Perl.
Illustrated throughout with numerous examples of actual code, and with exercises at the ends of chapters, the book is equally suited to home PC user wanting to install and learn about Linux on their PCs, and to students studying UNIX as part of a broader degree course. The book also includes many references to other sources of information for those wishing to take the subject further.
