"The name of the title says it all. This is a reference manual for Linux programmers. It is not an introductory text on programming in Linux it is just what the title suggests. The text does not dumb down the material any and expects you to be familiar with the language first."

"The book appears to be unofficially divided into three parts. Chapters 1-3 cover shell programming, chapters 4 and 5 cover various development tools and chapters 6 and 7 cover GUI programming. The appendix covers Perl and Tcl/Tk."

"The three chapters that cover shell programming each follow the same basic format. First control structures are covered such as While loops, Do Loops, If statements etc. Operators are covered next and then the shells commands . Each command is listed with its syntax and a brief description of the command. In some cases (very few) an example of the command is given. A section on configuring each shell follows its commands section."
