A book I found helpful was "UNIX for VMS Users" Philip E. Bourne, (1990),
Digital Press, ISBN 1-55558-034-3. The commands and their VMS equivalents
are compared, examples are given and a reasonable degree of detail is
presented for arcane features of UNIX. I made extensive use of this book
during the first few months of moving from VMS.
