How to Help Your Business Become an AI Early Adopter

"Welcome to the inaugural edition of the Shell Corner column. The premise of Shell Corner is simple: You, the Unix professional send in your favorite Unix shell script and each month UnixReview.com will publish a selected script in this column. I will evaluate the submissions and award each winner $100.00 courtesy of UnixReview.com. What could be more simple?"

"Joe Casad, UnixReview.com senior editor, wanted a "shell guru" to author this column, but ended up with me instead. My experience is mostly as a Unix business applications programmer and not as a systems administrator. I feel my attitude is more minimalist than most, and my script evaulations are certain to reflect this. I enjoy scripts that are (relatively) easy to read and well documented. If I have trouble reading a script, chances are I'll quickly go to the next one."

"What are the limitations on script submissions? I can think of no limitation, other than length. Use any of the Unix tools such as Perl, awk, sed, etc, as well as high level languages, such as C or C++. I'll even struggle through assembler if you will."
