The Virtual Bookcase Reviews of 'Aix Companion, An':

Reviewer Rob Slade wrote:
Part one looks at installation and setup of an RS/6000 computer using AIX and the Motif graphical interface. Part two provides an intermediate level overview of a System V based UNIX environment. Part three looks at UNIX system management, including TCP/IP and Internet networking. Cohn's organization is logical and his writing contains enough humour to keep it interesting. (There is no truth to the rumour that IBM chose the Korn shell for AIX because they liked the "$" prompt.) Although directed specifically at AIX users, this could serve as a general introduction for PC users moving to any form of UNIX. copyright Robert M. Slade, 1995
