Beginning with the Shell

A session at linux.conf.au 2012

  • Peter Chubb

Wednesday 18th January, 2012

10:30am to 12:20pm (EST)

The Bourne shell is universally available on every Linux system, from the least-powerful embedded device, to the largest supercomputer.

In this tutorial, we'll cover the basics of:
The Shell's input: how it reads words, splits them, expands special stuff, etc.
Control flow: case, if, while, for
Common utilities: sed, awk, grep, test, find, xargs, etc

After some introductory material, we'll spend the time working together to build a simple server for fortunes/fables entirely in shell.
