    The AIX 5L Differences Guide Version 5.2, SG24-5765-02, and AIX 5L Differences Guide Version 5.3, SG24-7463-00, are excellent references for learning about AIX 5L. No matter what your skill level of UNIX, you will be able to use the AIX 5L Differences Guides as a starting point into many of the newest features of AIX 5L.

    This IBM Redbooks publication concentrates on providing experienced systems administrators in one flavor of UNIX (either HP-UX or AIX 5L) with a jump start into easy administration of the other. We concentrate on HP-UX 11i Version 1 (also known as HP-UX 11.11) as we had no access to the Integrity platform (Itanium family of processors) to allow any hands-on testing with HP-UX 11i Version 2 (also known as HP-UX 11.23). There are sections of this book that touch on HP-UX 11i Version 2 to explain, where possible, the differences in concepts between Version 11, Version 2, and AIX 5L.

    Many of the examples given for both HP-UX and AIX 5L concentrate on the actual command line rather than from the available GUIs for the respective operating systems. The command line provides a closer feel for what is actually happening on the machine.
