I want to learn command line scripting

By Patrick Horn ·
I would like to learn how to write scripts. What I need is a book that starts at the beginning and explains scripting inside and out. My kingdom for a well written book.

The VB for the Complete Idiot or VB for Dummies are also a great series of books if they are still available as they explain how to do things and why things happen the way that they do and are written in such a manner as not to expect the reader to have any prior knowledge of the topic being covered.

These are a complete range of books that should be available to suit your individual needs.

Download Kixstart and read the manual. There are literally thousands of script examples online to look at.

For people who are new to scripting, it's a great way to get up to speed fast and see enough script examples to get a feel for it.

This is in use in many, many networks today. And there is a reason for that!
