I don't know what unit.d is, so I will respond knowing that my answer
could be totally wrong and you could downvote me into oblivion.

Honestly, I got a lot of good information from the *Unix Power Tools*
book by O'Reilly. Some copies were donated to the LUG library many
years ago. 

I also remember reading the BASH programming HOWTO, but I don't
remember how influential that was. 

Of course, you can find lots of examples of shell programming on your
own Linux installation. Try the following command:

file /usr/bin/* | grep POSIX
