Bash: a Neglected Tool With a Lot of Possibilities (An Introduction)
With Bash a lot more is possible as most people think. In this talk I will show the possibilities of Bash and give some hints how to write code: scripts and libraries.
Bash is especially powerful when you use it as a glue to connect several tools together: the idea of Unix: have a lot of simple tools that do one thing and do this perfectly and connect those to get done what has to be done.
Things I will show:
- (Directory) Functions to Make Your Live Easier
- Command Line
- Here Documents (as Comment)
- Programming Style
