And the script is not very flexible either--if you'd like to print, mail, backup, and delete some other file, you'll have to create another version of the script.
Also, notice that running a shell script requires that it be read first; this is why you must have both read and execute permission to run a shell script file, while you need only execute permission to run a binary file.
The Korn shell itself has two descendents of its own: the POSIX standard shell, which is virtually identical to the Korn shell; and a big Linux favorite, the Bourne Again shell.

  Shell script notes
Thus, shell scripts can be extremely powerful, but may not be efficient for performing complicated calculations because of the overheads involved.
The Bourne shell (sh) lacks job control, but it has good support for shell programming, it is standard on all Unix systems, and it is the basis for the shell in the POSIX standard.
The condition in a shell if-then-else statement is a command that is terminated by end of line or by a semicolon.

 Shell Script Writing   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
A shell script is a sequence of shell commands in a single file that are then executed with one command.
A third way to run a shell script is to explicitly indicate what shell you would like to run as a child to interpret the script.
Often when a shell script is called, you want to be able to pass the script information as you call it.

 Shell Scripts   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Introduction Shell scripts are command files that automate frequently used procedures.
The first line of the script file determines the type of shell used; scripts running under the C shell usually begin the first line with a "#" character.
The C Shell Script Language Shell scripts are useful for tasks that are more complicated than executing a sequence of UNIX commands.

 Shell Programming Basics
Scripts must be ASCII text and written with a text editor such as emacs, vi, or pico.
From within a script you also have access to user-defined environment variables (variables set by the user in a script and exported for use) and shell variables (read-only variables set by the shell).
The script sends an escape sequence which is interpreted by the terminal and causes it to change the name in the titlebar.

 Shells and Shell Scripts
A Unix shell is a command language interpreter, the primary purpose of which is to translate command lines typed at a terminal into system actions.
The shell has some built-in functions, which it performs directly, but most commands that you enter cause the shell to execute programs that are external to the shell.
Another way to execute a script within the context of a new shell is to run csh and give it the name of the script file as its first argument.

 Seven tips for optimizing shell script security
The first and most important security consideration in shell scripting is not the writing of the script but paying attention to who owns and runs it.
Shell scripts and the commands they contain are executed with the executing user's permissions (including group permissions).
Many people mistakenly believe that hard-coding passwords into shell scripts (especially scripts used to transfer files or synchronize data between multiple hosts) is a good solution to the need for automation or unattended execution of scripts.

 Shell Programming Techniques
The solution is to use a UNIX feature whereby the first line of a shell script indicates under which shell the script is to be executed.
The output from each script would be interleaved in the output file since each instance of the script would be writing to the same output file.
When the next user runs the script, a different PID will be assigned to the script's execution, thus causing a separate log file to be created each time instead of appending to the existing log file.

 Rule-based DoS attacks prevention shell script | Web Hosting Dedicated Server Linux Windows Security Managed Articles ...
If the proposed simple shell script detects DoS attacks that match predefine rules in the shell script, then the DoS attack IPs are added to the detected-IPs file and have their access to the server disabled.
The shell script is composed of a part of DoS attack detection rules, a part of reducing redundant IPs, and a part of disabling detected IPs.
In order to share the fllist of IPs, the shell script must be placed in every router, and router-to-router communication is needed to assemble the fllist of IPs for the larger framework of network security.

What that implies, is that every subsequent shell (from the shell in which we exported the variable) is going to have the variable NAME with a value 'Hamish'.
Primarily because that shell variable wasn't exported from the previous shell to the new shell and is thus not an environmental variable.
Shell variables are only available in the original shell where we issue the assignment of the variable.

 Randall R Schulz - Re: shell script returning a value
Again, whether or the sub-process is a Cygwin executable or a "native" Windows program (including another Java program) and if it is a Cygwin program whether it's a binary or a shell script is all irrelevant--exit values are propagated uniformly by any of these variants to each other.
interpretation done on the script file, since the invocation of the sub-process from the JVM is done using Windows native APIs, not the Cygwin POSIX emulation of exec().
You will have to invoke the shell explicitly and pass it arguments that cause that shell to run your script.

 Unix Shell Scripts
In previous discussions we have talked about many of the facilities of the C shell, such as command aliasing, job control, etc. In addition, any collection of csh commands may be stored in a file, and csh can be invoked to execute the commands in that file.
In Unix there are several shells that can be used, the C shell (csh and its extension, the T C shell tcsh), the Bourne Shell (sh and its extensions the Bourne Again Shell bash and the highly programmable Korn shell ksh) being the more commonly used.
As an example, suppose we write a shell script which is supposed to have two parameters, and that the code will set up two variables, `name1' and `name2' from those two parameters, i.e.

 ShellScriptBuilder for Capistrano   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
The plan is to have this buidl shell scripts and then for Capistrano to upload the script to the server into a tmpfile and then execute the script like a normal shell script.
I mean, if people are too stupid to do systmes admin type work in ruby or shell itself, then creating this extra level of insulation will only confuse them even more and just be more headaches for you when they start claiming that certain "commands" no longer work in the ruby shell script builder.
And also dealing with shell escasping at the same time you deal with ruby's and capistrano string escaping can be complicated to remember how to escape things properly.

 UNIX Shell Script Tutorials & Reference
Shell programming was not something I wanted to do from the start, it kind of crept up on me over the years.
Well after my first UNIX training course I went back to the office and started to look at the support requirements and it soon became obvious that to do a good job something had to be done regarding the overload of administration on a detailed level as the system grew.
By editing the scripts and putting in variables, instead of hard coded values, I found I could make them generic enough for anybody to use, as long as the user's environment contained enough background information for the script to pick up and use.

 Transforming a Shell Script into an Automator Action
The shell script in Listing 1 accomplishes this by using ssh to execute the system_profiler tool on a series of computers via an IP network.
The script depends on the fact that all of the computers under the IT manager's control have been configured with password-less ssh login by first creating a pubic/private key pair and adding the manager's public key to the.ssh/authorized_keys file on each remote system.
When the script is executed, these values are passed to the script as environment variables.

 O'Reilly Media -- Bookstore: Classic Shell Scripting
Shell scripting is essential for Unix users and system administrators-a way to quickly harness and customize the full power of any Unix system.
Writing shell scripts requires more than just a knowledge of the shell language, it also requires familiarity with the individual Unix programs: why each one is there, how to use them by themselves, and in combination with the other programs.
The very basics of how scripts are written and used are also mentioned here, and beginners may want to refer to an additional book for more of the basic instructions.

The latter allows you to quickly and easily test the results of your scripts as you go along, and also allows you to save the script as a droplet so that it can be run from the desktop with a simple double click, or by dragging and dropping files onto it.
As with any shell script you need to let the host computer know which shell interpreter to use for the tasks you are going to perform.
