ACKNOWLEDGMENT

I would like to thank all of those involved with making this book a reality. Thanks to Nancy Fortson and Bill Kesler for hiring me into a UNIX environment that provided much of the knowledge to write this book. And to Nancy for being a patient mentor during my learning of advanced UNIX. Binion Amerson provided initial reviews of other documents which lead to the ultimate decision to write this book. Tina Pekrul provided initial ideas and direction on information to add to the book. Thanks to Bill Kesler and Scott Fort for being the best bosses I have worked for and allowing me to use computer resources to work on the book. And a special thanks to Chris Boyd for his effort in the final review of the book. And finally, I am especially grateful to Russ and Dianne Stultz for their willingness to publish my work. I would also like to thank Denise McEvoy for her effort in editing the book.

This book is dedicated to my wife for her support and encouragement during this long endeavor.
