Writing Shell Scripts

Shell scripting, at its most basic, is taking a series of commands you might type at a command line and putting them into a file, so you can reproduce them again at a later date, or run them repeatedly without having to type them over again.

You can use scripts to automate repeated tasks, handle complex tasks that might be difficult to do correctly without repeated tries, redoing some of the coding, or both.
