"UNIX For Dummies" got you started with UNIX. Now you want to know more. This book reveals how to use different UNIX shells, including the new Bourne-Again shell (bash), as well as how to write scripts and use sed and awk. Most importantly, many UNIX systems connect to the Internet, and you'll learn how to use e-mail, Usenet newsgroups, telnet, the World Wide Web, Gopher, FTP, and IRC -- all the great Internet services!
