Well, to each his own, I guess...  :P

Well, at least at first, it seems dash / Bourne shell might be smaller targets :)

I used to have a $9 "in a nutshell" book with many example sh scripts.. but I can't seem to find it to get the exact title.

Don't know if it was UNIX in a Nutshell, but the author of that seems to have co-written a separate book on shell scripting:

  Classic Shell Scripting

Both appear to be "Look Inside" compatible :)

As a side note, I noticed that O'Reilly provides a "Browse Contents" feature for (some of?) its books and sometimes has something akin to Amazon's "Look Inside".  May be there are other options for browsing book content...

Hmm...perhaps "Browse Contents" is just re-using Google content...

  BASH Debugger

The Bash Debugger Project is a source-code debugger for bash that follows the gdb command syntax.
