  • What exactly do you mean when you say "has unix"? It has to run on Unix (or Linux)? – Gert Nov 30 '10 at 11:35

There are many resources available if you simply do a google search for an example this turns up in a a search and looks like a decent introduction:


Of course depending on exactly what Unix OS(s) you'll be working with you will want to look at some details for that particular OS as there are some differences.


Things that come to mind:

  • Learn from you co-workers which are already on the project.
  • Read a book a two about Unices and the variant you're involved in.
  • When in trouble: think, read the manuals, use the web search, ask colleagues, ask here (in that order!)
  • Learn from your errors.
  • Enjoy
  • Any book recommendations? – Pacerier Dec 25 '14 at 11:49
