- Course Outline
This workshop is designed for people who need to use, write, and modify shell scripts to automate and to re-define aspects of their computing environment. The workshop examines basic aspects of using and implementing standard UNIX shell programming, with an emphasis on solving practical problems.
Students examine the features and usefulness of UNIX power utilities such as sed, grep, awk, and join. Scripts and utilities are thoroughly explored in laboratory and classroom session leading to mastery of the skills needed to develop practical shell programs.
Students accomplish explicit tasks in a working environment, creating programs, debugging faulty scripts, and working through case studies.
Audience Users, System and Database Administrators, Network Administrators and Programmers.
