Title: Learning the vi Editor (6th Edition)
Publisher: O'Reilly
Authors: Linda Lamb, Arnold Robbins
Rating: 4/5
Customer opinion - 4 stars out of 5
Great Introduction


This book not only covered basic vi, but also variants such as vim, elvis, and more. I knew next to nothing going into this book, and by the end of the first few chapters, I was VERY comfortable with this often scary editor. Now that I know many of the powerful features, there's no going back to the others...

Third time (edition) is a charm!


This text is excellent! I have a positive bias towards most of the works of Messerschmitt, Lee, Parks et al; and this book is no exception. The added MIMO channel detail in this edition makes it a well-rounded reference.

A very good book for users with an intermediate knowledge of UNIX/Linux. Some sections, such as the TCP/IP primer will be redundant for many, but apart from that (and a few grammatical errors;)), a great read.

Don't look at another Perl book until you have read this..


If you want to understand the koan that is Perl, you must listen to Wall's hand clap. This is the first step. I have bought any and all of my friends that were interested in Perl a copy of this book as a gift. It will teach you why Perl is great. "Programming Perl" is then required to gain mastery in the ways of Perl.
