Shell Scripts Tutorials

July 29th, 2008 by elizar

I’m thinking of doing a series of post that will talk about Shell Scripting, scripting tutorial, examples, application… the whole nine yards of Unix/Linux shell scripts/programming.

The topic of shell scripting is a very broad topic and posting one super long post here will take me all day.. or weeks, depending on my mood. 😀 and internet searches.

And did a trend search for shell programming, shell scripts, shell tutorial and it’s alright. Though the volume of searches has been decreasing but that’s alright. There are still some.
