This course will teach you about the shell (command interpreter) as a tool for automating tasks in an macOS environment
You will learn system variables and the most common program structures (if, while, for, case), and how they are implemented in a shellscript. We will also dive into process and resource handling, and how shellscripts can be used to to increase efficiency on the macOS platform.
You will use the languages awk and sed together with pipes to extend the functionality in shellscripts. Practical tasks will be emphasized.
There are several shells to choose from (csh, sh, zsh, bash etc.) and they have much in common and some important differences. This course will mainly be about Bourne shell (sh) and Bourne Again shell (bash).
This course is possible in cooperation with Redpill-Linpro AS
