Unix Tip #4589- October 4, 2017
A SHAMELESS PLUG
The Best Tip I can give you right now is to pick up a copy of
UNIX HINTS AND HACKS By the Creator of UGU.
It is available at Barnes & Nobles, Borders, and Technical book stores.
Some of the past tips from UGU can also be seen in the book.
Here are what some UGU'ers are saying about the book:

FANTASTIC - FIVE STARS *****
This is a great book for those looking for quick solutions
to common real work scenarios. If you are responsible for
Unix (yes including Linux) systems this is one book you have
to have. For coding solutions the book usually shows both shell
script and perl examples for the same problem

GREAT BOOK!! - FIVE STARS *****
Finally a book that deals with the real things that most UNIX
system administrators face. It saves you the trouble of finding
out things only after you face it. You could save yourself
a lot of time solving problems that could have been avoided
by reading this book. With the price nothing beats it. Not even
those $30+ books.

GREAT BOOK - FIVE STARS *****
This is a great book. It has many tricks that are geared toward real
world experience that are not covered in any other book I have seen.
I especially liked the section geared toward getting your first
job as an system admin. It is one book worth buying. For all kinds
of information for less than 15 dollars how could you go wrong.
NOTE: All tips provided are USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. Tips are submitted
by various unix admins around the globe. UGU suggest you read and
test each tip in a non-volitile environment before placing into
