 The /New/ KornShell Command and Programming Language
Pardon this crass commercial message ...

 * Updated KornShell ksh93 Covered in New Book

UPDATED >>> -- The KornShell, a widely used interactive command language and
powerful, high-level programming language, has undergone major changes and
additions, increasing its usefulness for writing applications.  An update of
their classic ksh book, "The New KornShell Command and Programming Language
(ksh93)," by Morris I. Bolsky and David G. Korn, Bell Labs, Murray Hill, N.J.,
is the specification and a reference handbook for ksh93, yet can be used with
all versions of ksh.  Intended for new as well as experienced users, the book
includes a tutorial, many examples, and a 26-page quick-reference with shading
to highlight ksh93's new features.  The new version, ksh93, is compatible with
POSIX and ISO standards, the Bourne shell, and earlier versions of ksh, which
reduces learning time and enables reuse of existing scripts. ["The New
KornShell Command and Programming Language (ksh93)," M.I. Bolsky and D.G. Korn,
Prentice Hall, 1 Lake St., Upper Saddle River, NJ 07458, 1995; ISBN
0-13-182700-6; paperback $42.  To order, phone 1-800-947-7700.]

In the same vein, for a mere $4.50 (Quantity 1, discounts start at quantity
10), you can get a 24-side, very complete KSH reference card from SSC.
The card covers both ksh-88 and ksh-93, using color to distinguish features
that are only in one, only in the other, and common to both.  This makes a
handy thing to have when you need to find something in ksh real quick.

They have lots of good Unix and C reference stuff. If you're heavy into
ksh, you want the ref card.  (finger for lots of info.)

I wrote the card, David Korn reviewed it, but believe me, I ain't
gettin' rich off it. :-)
