Qshell for iSeries (Paperback)
From the basics of programming in the Qshell on iSeries to complete coverage of previously undocumented topics, programmers will not only learn the Qshell more easily than they can with the Qshell manual from IBM, they will also learn practical applications of using the Qshell effectively. Written for users who are more comfortable with DDS, CL, and RPG as well as those using modern languages such as C and Java, this book allows those who are unfamiliar with Unix to easily learn this technology, which otherwise might be foreign to them. Although written specifically for iSeries programmers, the information gleaned here will be largely applicable to the shells for Linux and Unix, so programmers not familiar with those platforms will find those shells much easier to learn after learning Qshell.
