This book recognizes your strong knowledge base in MVS programming, and shows you how to build on existing skills to master UNIX quickly and easily.

Strengths and weaknesses of the two systems are contrasted, and the history and features of UNIX are introduced. Then you'll dive right in to learning UNIX, hands-on. UNIX for MVS Programmers guides you step by step through: * The UNIX file system: Basic commands for creating and manipulating directories and files * Advanced file processing and management: Archiving, compression, linking, translation, searching and comparison, sorting and counting * Text manipulations: Editing files with vi and ed * The Bourne Shell: Creating commands and programs, shell scripts, error handling, interrupts, and debugging * Document preparation: Formatting documents with nroff, troff, eqn, and tbl * Communicating with users and with other computers: Mail and messaging, network access, remote file handling, and batch communications Appendices provide summaries and quick references for all the concepts you've learned, and a complete bibliography suggests other books to help you expand your new skills. UNIX for MVS Programmers is aimed specifically at seasoned MVS users and programmers who are migrating to a UNIX environment. It presumes an understanding of basic computing principles and is intended as a guide and a reference for programmers, users, and managers, both during and after the transition.
