Our UNIX Shell Programming training follows the following course structure:
What is a Shell Script?
Run Time Data Handling
Korn, Bash, and POSIS Syntax
Our UNIX Shell Programming course is intended for those who would like to learn how to develop and modify UNIX shell scripts. This course is not appropriate for C shell Programmers.
There are no official prerequisites. Some previous programming knowledge would however be beneficial.
UNIX Shell is a command-line interpreter, which is designed to run shell scripts. A UNIX shell script is a text file containing a group of commands that can be read by humans. These commands could also be used manually one at a time via the UNIX operating system command prompt. However, usually, the commands are kept in a file, or script, in order to avoid the need to type the commands at the command prompt each time the user wishes to perform a particular task. Unlike other advanced programming languages, such as C or C++, shell scripts do not need to be arranged into a binary format in order to be used.
Our two-day UNIX Shell Programming training course will give delegates the practical skills required to develop and write UNIX shell scripts. Our experienced UNIX trainers will introduce the majority of built-in shell commands, in addition to the core program control structures. Candidates will also be taught how to write basic scripts in order to improve command output and write scripts to trap user interrupts. Furthermore, delegates will obtain the practical skills required to be able to effectively influence shell variables as well as user-defined variables in scripts, and put in place conditional execution facilities.
This UNIX Shell Programming training includes the following:
