Mac OS X 10.3 Panther Little Black Book · 12 September 2005, 07:34 by Admin

Actually, there’s nothing “little” about this. It’s over 500 pages of very precise and specific Panther detail. Don’t let the redundant title (OS Ten 10.3 ???) set you back: this is a good guide to Panther.

I liked that the author didn’t completely ignore Terminal. There are some mistakes here and there:

If you’re a power user, you’ll be pleased to know that such shells
as zsh,csh, tcsh and plain old share (are) also available for
Panther.

The Share shell? A little later:

However, Unix doesn’t search the directory you are currently in.

Right: Unix doesn’t search anything, and Bash etc. search $PATH..

But this is nit-picking. This book is worth having if you are new to Panther (and are not we all?).
