    Shell programming is basically writing programs in sh (or bash as it is called on Linux).
    In it's most basic form, it's writing scripts which perform a sequence of repetitive tasks. But it is a full language with a range of loop constructs, variables, functions etc, so it is possible to write quite interesting programs.

    Network programming (sockets to you) begins with "beej"
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
