    You could try the advanced bash scripting guide: http://www.tldp.org/LDP/abs/abs-guide.pdf

    It taught me quite a lot.

    I find the best way to learn is to think of something you need to do on the computer in a repetitive fashion then search the forums for a script to do that.

    Take that script and modify it for your purposes and test it.

    For instance:

    "How do I move all of my music files (*.mp3) up two directories, find duplicates, then reencode them to 128 kbps?"

    By searching for "script move music files"; "script duplicate music files"; "script reencode music files" you fill get a lot of hits. For instance for duplicates:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...te+music+files

    When you take a script and run it you will quickly discover what needs changing and how to modify it to suit your purposes. Break the big problem down into smaller pieces (demodulation) and solve the smaller pieces individually then put them together (nesting).

    Laziness is the key. You want the script to do the work so you don't have to!
