Additional Information

This one day course will introduce you to scripting techniques on Unix/Linux. Linux 3 builds up on the contents of the Linux 1 and Linux 2 courses.

The course will include the Unix shell scripting tools sed and awk, shell scripting with bash shell, and the regular expressions used in pattern matching. In addition to being useful on CSC's servers, the skills learnt during the course may come in handy elsewhere too (e.g. data processing), knowing them makes working on Unix environments more efficient.

You are strongly encouraged to bring in your own scripts or scripting problems and we will then work on them together at the end of the day during the hands-on session, but if you don't have any – that's great too and you are still warmly welcome to the course.
