This Sun Microsystems Solaris Operating System and Korn Shell Programming training course introduces the delegate to the main concepts of the SOLARIS Operating System. The most commonly used commands are described in detail as are the command line wildcard and redirection facilities. The mechanisms by which a user acquires a login environment are discussed and the main features of the Korn/Posix/Bash Shells are introduced.

The course is designed to give delegates practical experience in developing and writing shellscripts. Most of the built-in shell commands are introduced together with the main program control structures.

The delegates will practise:

  • Creating, copying, renaming, moving and deleting files and directories
  • Using the shell's redirection and pipe facilities
  • Editing text files using the vi editor
  • Setting and changing access permissions on files
  • Monitoring and controlling their own processes
  • Using the basic file and text searching utilities
  • Customising their own login environment
  • Writing simple scripts to enhance basic command output
  • Using the various shell quoting mechanisms appropriately
  • Manipulating shell variables and user-defined variables in scripts
  • Implementing conditional execution facilities
  • Using the shell's built-in loop constructs where appropriate
