Comment 1. People follow several ways to learn a new programming language. Some follow blogs, some go for online tutorials, some invest in college courses and classes, and some like to sit with a well-written book. Personally, I believe in the traditional manner of learning something through books. Coming to Unix, since its birth in , the language has been constantly under development. Especially for mobile development and server environment management, it is very important to learn Unix, since it builds up the base for advanced programming.
A shell script is a computer program designed to be run by the Unix shell, a command line interpreter. It is a text file containing a sequence of shell commands and constructs that perform a routine task. This sequence is typically executed by entering the name of the script on the command line. Alternatively, a script can be initialised using cron, a time-based job scheduler. It makes little sense to continually type a sequence of commands at a command prompt, particularly if they are long, complex, or difficult to remember. Scripting offers the virtue of alleviating this unnecessary burden.
