About the author: during 19 years of professional experience in software development, Juergen Thumm faced the same problems again and again on all kinds of machines: even the smallest functions like how to filter and replace text in a batch file were not easily available, or too complicated, with a completly different syntax between Windows and Linux. Therefore he started development of SFK, and after ten years, it contains nearly everything you need on a normal working day, in an easy, plain English syntax.
This book contains: an introduction how to get SFK running quickly, a 70 pages tutorial introducing the most popular functions and a 270 pages reference part with the full syntax of all functions, with many examples.
