Shell Scripting, SED and AWK to work efficiently on Linux and Unix system

This course "Shell Scripting, SED and AWK on Linux and Unix" provides good topics on shell scripting, SED and AWK to work efficiently on Linux/Unix system.

Why learn Shell Scripting

  • To work efficiently on Linux/Unix System
  • Requires for Software Development/Maintenance
  • Automation of tasks
  • Better management of system
  • Efficient System Admin/Support activity
  • Command line interface for software application/product
  • Well prepared for interview

Managing the system is very important activity for any organization business. Similarly all application require simple interface to use and big real time solutions require 24 hour support for lot of different tasks. This requires systematic way of doing the tasks to manage the systems and solutions efficiently. Big businesses require continuous improvement to manage these tasks efficiently. Linux and Unix system provides lot of commands to do all but at the same time it require automate as much possible to manage the operational tasks efficiently.

Shell scripting, SED and AWK provides wonderful way to use the Linux and Unix system to automate the complex tasks in programmatic way. The shell script helps in lot of tasks - managing system, timely operations, production support for big solutions, release and update, interfaces for application. It provides all in a simple manner and easy to understand for any developer/admin, so that future maintenance is also easy. The course covers following topics-

  • Introduction to Shell Scripting
  • Decisions
  • Loops
  • Command Line Parameters
  • Functions
  • Array
  • SED
  • AWK

This course "Shell Scripting, SED and AWK on Linux and Unix" explains different features of Shell scripting, SED, AWK and shows simple implementation. The course develops the shell scripting understanding in steps by providing explanation and immediate implementation. The course has simple and useful examples which will be helpful in software development/maintenance.

I have used Fedora on Oracle Virtual Box as environment but it can be done on any Linux and Unix system with shell and small changes as applicable for that shell.

This course will be expanded soon, some of the topics that will be added are-

  • Handling options
  • Debugging

This course will be updated with adding new topics and existing topics will be provided in detail to have good understanding of Shell Programming to build the technical strength and shape your career.
