You don't have much choice when it comes to Qshell documentation, but now, it doesn't matter. This book is the only one you'll ever need if you want to learn about Qshell. But what is Qshell anyway?
Qshell is a Unix-style shell and utilities command interface for OS/400. Together, the shell and utilities provide a powerful scripting environment.
Not only does this book teach you all about Qshell in a manner you'll find easier than the Qshell manual, but you'll discover things IBM never documented there. Qshell is a great program, but it will do much more for you than IBM will tell you, and this book gives you the scoop on that inside information.
The information gleaned here will also 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. And leveraging your knowledge is what employee value is all about.
Ted Holt and IBMer Fred Kulack take you through Qshell and show you the ins and outs with more examples than you can imagine. Further, the book is written for people who will be using modern languages like C and Java, as well as those who are more comfortable with DDS, CL, and RPG. So whatever your angle on the iSeries is, this book is what you've been looking for.
Why should you care about Qshell? First, Qshell is not an alternate interface to the others; it includes commands not found in QCMD and iSeries Navigator. Second, Qshell is well suited for working with the Integrated File System (IFS). Third, Qshell can run shell scripts from Unix platforms with little or no modification, which means programmers from Unix systems can work productively on the iSeries. Fourth, Qshell handles multithreaded programming. Fifth, Qshell is a good environment for creating Java applications.
This incredible Qshell resource will teach you:
