Hey, all:

It's almost summer, and I'm going to need a project. I've been
thinking that I really need to know more about shell scripting, so
maybe now's the time.

I am soliciting recommendations for a good book or web-based tutorial
that can get me going. As an example, I really enjoyed going through
O'Reilly's 'Learning Perl' (llama); it was a good mix of information
and little exercises to show you how things work.

I've googled around a bit, but I'd like to know if anyone has found
something on this subject that they really liked.

I took a quiok look at the fish book (O'Reilly's 'Learning Bash', or
something like that), and I thought it might be a little too
introductory for my needs (please correct me if my impression is
incorrect). I'm pretty familiar with the command line, but I want to
focus more on scripting.

Thanks in advance for the help!
