We all use the Linux command line shell in a variety of ways in our daily research and system administration tasks. In this tutorial, we review the basics of working with the shell on a Linux system, and explore a range of tools and techniques for using the shell more productively in our day-to-day work.
The tutorial comprises three sessions. Topics covered include:
File system hierarchy standard
Streams, redirection and pipes
Text processing, filtering and transformation
