UNIX Shell Programming Course Overview

UNIX Shell Programming Course Overview

The UNIX Shell Programming course is designed to teach learners how to automate tasks and manipulate data on UNIX systems using shell scripting. The course covers a comprehensive set of topics that provide a solid foundation in shell scripting, starting with a review of basic UNIX commands to advanced scripting techniques.

Module 1 begins with a refresher on UNIX commands, leading into Module 2 which introduces shell scripting basics. As learners progress through Modules 3 to 5, they delve into variables, integer arithmetic, and handling runtime data. Module 6 introduces conditional execution, while Module 7 expands on Korn, Bash, and POSIX syntax. Module 8 focuses on loop constructs, and Module 9 covers multi-branch decisions. By Module 10, learners are equipped to define and use functions. In Module 11, interrupt handling is addressed, and Module 12 rounds out the course with additional features and facilities like arrays and here documents.

By mastering UNIX shell programming, learners will gain the skills necessary to streamline their work and enhance their ability to perform complex tasks efficiently on UNIX systems.
