Bookshelf of UNIX References on CD Now Available

SEBASTOPOL, CA -- You know that one of the O'Reilly UNIX books provides a solution to your pressing problem, but you can't remember which one. Or you're working at home or off-site, and you don't want to lug a shelf-full of books with you. Or you don't yet have the complete O'Reilly library of UNIX books, and you don't have the shelf space to spare.

The recently released UNIX CD Bookshelf contains six O'Reilly books plus the software from UNIX Power Tools-all on a convenient CD-ROM. A bonus hardcopy book of the bestselling UNIX in a Nutshell: System V Edition, is also included. It has a master index for all six books and a powerful search engine-and all the text is extensively hyperlinked-so you can find what you're looking for quickly . Packaged with the hardcopy of Unix in a Nutshell, it takes up less than 2 inches of bookshelf space, and when you're on the run, juts grab the CD and go. The six included books, purchased separately, would retail for $175.70, but this CD-ROM package retails for only $69.95.

The CD-ROM contains the complete text of:

Formatted in HTML, The UNIX CD Bookshelf can be read by any Web browser. The books are fully searchable and cross-referenced. In addition to individual indexes for each book, a master index for the entire library is provided.

A free sample chapter, Chapter 2: UNIX Commands from Unix in a Nutshell, is available at: http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/unixcd/chapter/
