This course is designed for those who have taken Introduction to Unix for Mac OS X, or have equivalent experience, and require greater productivity within the Unix environment. It teaches shell scripting for the Bash shell. The Bash shell is an improved Bourne shell used on Linux systems, Mac's OS X systems, and the CYGWIN PC desktop application. Typical Unix commands used in shell scripting will be presented along with programming concepts used in writing scripts (branching, loops, variables, quoting, sub-shells, debugging, and trapping signals). The stream editor sed is also covered with an introduction to basic regular expressions.
This course is designed for those that desire further knowledge of Unix and the ability to solve problems and create automatic processes.
Students will learn to write powerful programs using the Bash shell programming language. With these programs (called shell scripts), the student will be able to quickly perform complex operations, automate repetitive tasks, and create interactive programs that respond to user input.
