Feeling engaged? This site will, one track at a time, reveal why these songs mean so much to me. The website that supports the various teaching materials that I have helped write in the past mostly concerning Unix and Perl, and including our book Unix and Perl to the Rescue!

This site now has an expanded focus as we are writing a new book: Unix and Python to the Rescue! I plan to write some blog posts regarding learning Python from the perspective of a long time Perl user. This used to be hosted on a separate website, but has now been included as a separate blog here.
So here we have Keith Bradnam and Ira Korf expounding on two of the driest subjects known to humankind, Unix and Perl, and they actually are witty, engaging, entertaining and, best of all, educational. Of course, if you are into Unix and Perl, you know they're really kind of exciting: but this book isn't written for us.

It's for total beginners. This book does not pretend to be anything more than what the authors declare it to be: a basic very basic, in fact introduction to Unix and Perl for "the life sciences and other data-rich pursuits ".
UNIX and Perl to the Rescue! : Keith Bradnam, : : Blackwell's
They say they will teach you what 20 Unix commands are and do - and that is precisely what they do. If you know Unix or Linux, you know they are very rich Operating Systems and have hundreds of functions and operators and thousands of variants. But the 20 Bradnam and Korf tutor the reader in are all you need to get going in Unix and Linux. Everything is in bite-sized chunks which bear a faint resemblance to chapters. The authors' wry wit permeates every page and, miraculously, they are actually funny and use their humor to drive their teaching.
UNIX and Perl to the Rescue!
The Perl section will not please those who have already passed through the fires of learning Perl. There are almost as many books on Perl programming as there are about Napoleon - and this volume does not try to compete with the classics of the Perl language. Rather it presumes the reader knows literally nothing about Perl and is motivated by the desire to escape enslavement by spreadsheet as they try to analyze mountains of data.
The authors set out to teach basic data analysis using Perl: they are not showing you how to parse a genome. They demonstrate the very basics of using Perl and make no secret that you are on your own in tackling larger projects. This is a book for non-programmers, for neophytes, a stress-fee introduction into the scary world of programming.
Unix and Perl to the Rescue!
And it does the job well. The authors' wry wit goes along way into making Unix and Perl or at least the very basics of the two easily accessible. Bradnam and Korf have done an excellent job here.
http://mta-sts.builttospill.reclaimhosting.com/micro-manual-de-comandante.php December 5, - Published on Amazon. This book claims that it will introduce you to Unix and Perl in about pages. I know nothing about either, so I followed the book's directions, and they worked. Google how to do this; there are multiple explanations online. All of the commands worked the way the book said they would. I practiced creating files, renaming them, deleting them, etc. Then, it was on to Perl programming.

Perl is a forgiving programming language, and I did understand the commands I was learning via the programs I was told to write. But, I do agree with the reviewer who said the book doesn't go as far as it claims it will. I thought I would be learning how to do some statistical programming in Perl, and that really doesn't happen. But, I now know infinitely more than I did when I started. I am sort of amazed that the book contains enough well organized information to get you started off the bat.
