A Pretty Good Shell Scripting Primer

I stumbled upon a pretty good document in Apple's Developer Connection - Shell Scripting Primer. I particularly like the "Designing Scripts for Cross-Platform Deployment" and "Performance Tuning" chapters.

Here is the table of contents:

  1. Shell Script Basics
  2. Result Codes, Subroutines, Scoping, Sourcing
  3. Paint by Numbers
  4. Regular Expressiopns Unfettered
  5. How awk-ward
  6. Designing Scripts for Cross-Platform Deployment
  7. Advanced Techniques
  8. Performance Tuning
  9. Appendix A: Other Tools and Information
  10. Appendix B: An Extreme Example: The Monte Carlo (Bourne) Method for Pi
