Question
Hi Mr. Suchitra Joshi, how are you doing. I want to ask, what things can be done on a Linux installed computer, by scripts? if someone learns how to write Linux scripts, what he will be able to do? what operations can be performed, and what is the benefit of learning scripting? Thank you very much.

Answer
Hello Abdul,

You can do many things with scripts. Shell scripts are useful for automating processes that you repeat at the prompt.

For reference, please check the links below -
