These books you've written are great for a bit of first principles insight and then quickly building up to functional usage. I will have no hesitation in referring colleagues to them!
Do you have a patreon or something similar? Do you accept pull requests for collaboration?
Thanks for creating such great free material!
Curious about what kind of issues you had with `awk`. Perhaps https://awk.js.org/ could help?
>Do you have a patreon or something similar?
I pay my bills by selling PDF/EPUB versions of these books. Purchase links are mentioned in the 'Buy' page. You can also visit https://learnbyexample.gumroad.com/ or https://leanpub.com/u/learnbyexample
>Do you accept pull requests for collaboration?
Not currently. You can file issues on GitHub (links are mentioned in the preface chapter) for typos/bugs/suggestions/etc.
Markdown source for these books are also available on GitHub.
I will consider buying the books and spread the word :) Thanks again!
C-x C-e in the CLI (not sure if it’s zsh only) will open your command line in your $EDITOR - useful to get code highlighting and write multi line commands if that’s the blocker. The problem is iterating.
Pipe your awk input to a file and then use this thing I wrote to build up your awk program. I use it most often with `jq`.
