Linux is extensively used as a platform for hosting database, email, web application and security services. Apart from being used as a server, Linux figures prominently as a development platform for C, C++, Java, embedded and web applications. With the thousands of commands available for a command line user, how can you remember them all? The answer is, you don’t. The real power of the computer is its ability to do the work for you. To get it to do this, we use the power of the shell to automate things by writing scripts.
Scripts are collection of commands that are stored in a file. The shell can read this file and act on the commands as if they were typed at the keyboard. In addition to the things you have learned so far, the shell also provides a variety of useful programming features to make your scripts truly powerful.
