This Unix Shell Programming training course is designed to give delegates practical experience in developing and writing shell scripts.

Most of the built-in unix shell commands are introduced together with the main program control structures. The course also gives practical experience using a range of UNIX tools to manipulate text and incorporate into UNIX shell scripts.

Course objectives:
Course Objectives To provide the skills needed to develop and customise unix shell programs and to make effective use of a wide range of standard UNIX programming and development tools.

COURSE PREREQUISITES:
Requirements The UNIX Shell Programming for Developers course assumes knowledge of the UNIX Operating System to the level covered in the UNIX Introduction course. Some programming experience may also prove advantageous.
