Unix Text Processing

Software

Jan-Piet Mens reminded me of Unix Text Processing, by Dale Dougherty and Tim O’Reilly of wood-cut animal fame. I’ve had the PDF of this book in my home directory for almost as long as I can remember, alongside the Camel Book and many of Michael W Lucas’s Mastery tomes.

I forgot that it’s available under a Creative Commons licence to download! You owe it to yourself to get a copy. The introducion to Unix alone is worth it.

Author bio and support

Me!

Ruben Schade is a technical writer and IaaS engineer in Sydney, Australia who refers to himself in the third person in bios. Wait, not BIOS… my brain should be EFI by now.

The site is powered by Hugo, FreeBSD, and OpenZFS on OrionVM, everyone’s favourite cloud infrastructure provider.
