I am very new to shell scripting and I need to create a shell script that would keep track of inventory from a csv file. So if someone orders something online the program will subtract that item that way they can't sell more than they actually have. I have no idea where to begin like I said I am extremely new to shell scripting. Any help is very much appreciated.. Thank you.
I'm probably looking for the Holy Grail here, but I figured I'd ask. Is there an IDE for Bash shell scripting on Ubuntu (Ubuntu 12.04 in my case)? Something with a code editor that lets you set breakpoints, inspect shell variables, etc. and works over an SSH session?
I just bought two thick (paper) books about shell scripting (on Bourne Shell, Korn Shell and Bash) in order to improve my scripting skills. Most of the things are explained very well, there's plenty of examples, and I feel like someone who's been learning a language "on the spot" by moving to the country, and now opens a grammar book.
I'm going to be starting a job in a month or so that I need to brush up on my Unix shell scripting skills. About 15 years ago, I took a college class for Unix shell scripting. I would like to find a good college book again, rather than just going to Amazon and just buying anything.
This is what I'm looking for... I want a book that's layed out so it teaches a chapter of some skill.
I'm studying linux command line for school work. some of the books of command line and shell scripting says something like: bash command cat or bash command date!!!
I can't get it. cat or date or etc are programs in /bin directory and I think the books are wrong. I'm going to say shells are different in syntax or some features, but not in commands.
I am seeking for some books or sites in order to use linux. I have used ubuntu for 3 years so i know some basics things (installing new packages, controlling processes) but I would want to have a best knowledge (x-session, firewall etc). Any advice even for ubuntu?
