Korn Shell Programming by Example



Korn Shell Programming by Example
| 2008-08-09 00:00:00 | | 0 | Programming


Korn Shell Programming by Example is a straight-forward, nuts and bolts book that will become a standard in the libraries of Unix administrators everywhere because of its real-life examples, progressive style, and lack of unnecessary fluff. Based on the Korn shell, it is an essential reference for administrators on how to program their system, and it is also beneficial for those new to Unix who need to know how to automate their system. Most of all, Korn Shell Programming by Example teaches and arms readers with the ability to solve problems they might encounter.

User review
Easy to understand
This book provides an overview of UNIX-LINUX commands. There are not a lot of complete ksh scripts. Korn shell users might want to also consider `Korn Shell: Programs for Your Survival at Work` by Larry L. Smith. Some of the examples in Randal K. Michael's `Mastering UNIX Shell Scripting` are also helpful.

User review
worth its weight in gold!
This book is essential for a unix system administrator student or one who is just starting out. It has the most complete and thorough coverage of daily system routines such as cron and job control. I have not been able to find such coverage of process handling in any of my several system administration books. I have read a few books on shell scripting but this one covers not only how to script but a great deal of knowledge surrounding shell scripting on a daily system administration practical basis. If you want a great reference tool, buy this book.

User review
Good Book for Total Beginners Only
I was disappointed in this book. Most of the book covers things that directly relate to Unix, and not necessarily to korn shell programming. However, if you are new to unix and/or new to korn shell scripting then this should be a good book for you.

Corticofugal Modulation of Sensory Information (Advances in Anatomy, Embryology and Cell Biology)



Corticofugal Modulation of Sensory Information (Advances in Anatomy, Embryology and Cell Biology)
A. Nuñez,E. Malmierca | 2007-01-19 00:00:00 | Springer | 76 | Internal Medicine

Sensory signals reach the cerebral cortex after having made synapses in different relay stations along the sensory pathway. The flow of sensory information in subcortical relay stations is controlled by the action of precise topographic connections from the neocortex. Several lines of research indicate that the massive corticifugal system improves ongoing subcortical sensory processing and reorganizes the receptive fields in visual, auditory and somatosensory systems. In all these sensory systems cortical neurons mediate both the highly focused positive feedback to subcortical neurons with overlapping receptive fields and a widespread inhibition to "non-matching neurons". This cortical feedback, which has been called "egocentric selection", can play a pivotal role in gating the sensory information that reaches the thalamus and cortex. Thus, corticofugal projections may contribute to selective attention since they enhance neuronal responses for attentionally relevant stimuli and by suppressing sensory responses of distractive stimuli. Also, corticofugal projections enhance oscillatory activity in order to synchronize neurons located in the same or in different relay stations in order to improve sensory processing. In conclusion, corticofugal pathways precisely control sensory transmission throughout the central nervous system.

Friedrich Nietzsche | 2004-02-02 00:00:00 | Dover Publications | 144 | German
