Introduction to Bash Shell Scripting
Once you really get to be at ease working on the command line, you’ll want to do more than what the previous chapters have taught you. You’ve already learned how to combine commands using piping, but if you really want to get the best out of your commands, there is much more you can do. In this chapter, you’ll get an introduction to the possibilities of Bash shell scripting, which really is the command line on steroids; piping and redirection just is not enough if you need to do really complex tasks. As soon as you really understand shell scripting, you’ll be able to automate many tasks, and thus do your work at least twice as fast as you used to do it.
