OK well I suggest you take a look at the bash shell and start writing a few
simple shell scripts to manage your own needs - they can be simply achieved
using your shell. If you want a book I suggest "Learning the Bash Shell" by
Camerin Newham & Bill Rosenblatt. Well worth its $35 asking price- putting it
to good use will save you hours of your valuable time. IMHO learning a shell is
the first step to using any **ix OS effectively. You can also use on-line
resources but for me a book is best<chuckles>
