Week 14 was more about filters in bash scripting, a filter can take either standard input (your keyboard) or the contents of one or more files, the input just gat to come from somewhere, be it a keyboard input, a file, or an output from another program.
It then performs some processing on the above data, the different processing is what separates one filter program from the other. The below are the guides I covered in week 14:
- Text Processing (Filters) In Bash Scripting
- Sort in Bash Scripting
- grep (Regular Expression) In Bash Scripting
- sed (Stream Editor) In Bash Scripting
- Understanding The Four (4) Ways Command-Line Runs Shell Script
I am pretty done with the essentials of bash scripting, but there are one or two concepts I need to iron out, then I would start writing bash scripts heavily to automate my system admin workflow, see ya on the bright side ;)
