Announcing my third e-book "Perl One-Liners Explained"

http://www.catonmat.net

I just finished writing my third e-book about Perl one-liners. Perl one-liners are small and awesome Perl programs that fit in a single line of code and they do one thing really well.

Performing Searches with grep

http://bashshell.net

You can direct grep to search through one file or many. You can also pipe in output from some other utility so that you’ll see only the information that you want to see.
