Default Learning to script...

Hi folks.

I want to start experimenting with basic shell scripting. I've found several web sites that describe how to do it, and I'll be looking into them in more detail soon. But I want to know which ones you more seasoned BSD users would recommend.

My supply of free time tends to fluctuate, so for now I want to stick with simple stuff. I want to start with scripts that essentially do what the old DOS *.bat files did. That is, execute a set of standard shell commands to complete a common task. I'm not ready for pipes, parameters and other such stuff. I'll get to those later on.

Thanks in advance,
