Shell Scripting Training FAQ'S

What is Shell?

A Shell is basically a command-line interpreter between user and kernel or a complete environment specially designed to run commands, shell scripts, and programs. In this, whenever a user enters human-readable commands (input commands) through the keyboard, the shell communicates with the kernel to execute these commands, and display output in a shell script. Just as there are different flavors of operating systems, there are also different types of shells. Every shell has its own set of commands and functions. Shells issue the prompt, $, called a command prompt. You can type into the prompt while it is displayed.

After you press enter, your input is read by the shell. Based on the first word of your input, it determines the command you want to run. The characters in a word are separated using spaces and tabs.

Why is a shell script needed?

Shell scripts can be written for a variety of reasons:

  • Keeping repetitive tasks to a minimum.
  • Can be used by system administrators for routine backups.
  • Monitoring the system.
  • Adding new functions to the shell.
  • Shell scripting allows you to create your own tools.
  • System admin can automate daily tasks

Write some advantages of shell scripting.

Shell scripting offers the following benefits:

  • An interactive debugging tool, as well as a quick start.   
  • Programmers need not change their syntax since both command and syntax are identical to those entered directly into the command line.  
  • Shell scripts are easy to use and quicker to write.   
  • It helps automate administrative tasks, so it is time-saving.   
  • As shell scripts are written in an interpreted language, they can be run without any additional effort on almost any modern operating system, including UNIX, Linux, BSD, and Mac OS X.  
  • They can be utilized for bulk execution rather than single instructions.   
  • Using it, you can develop your own custom operating system with relevant features.  
  • Software applications can be developed according to their respective platforms with this tool.

Write some limitations of shell scripting.

Shell scripting has the following disadvantages:

  • Errors are frequent and costly, and a single error can alter the command.  
  • The execution speed is slow. 
  • Bugs or inadequacies in the language's syntax or implementation.  
  • Large, complex tasks aren't well suited to it.  
  • Contrary to other scripting languages, etc., it provides a minimal data structure.   
  • Every time a shell command is executed, a new process is launched.

Not recommended as there will be no server access working to do practical after training. Also there will be no fix for the same. So it's wastage of money. If server access not at all working then no meaning to provide server access. Also it not working for single day properly. Need to followup daily but in response you told will fix that sir at home once he will back will fix. After he came back again it's not working and not able to fix for single day also Every time new excuse it's wastage of money.

I have undergone Oracle Tuning training. I can proudly say that this is one of the best training institutes available in the market. The way Mr. Kumar teaches the concepts and makes them understandable is very commendable and unique. Even a novice can clearly understand the concepts clearly after attending his classes.
