AIX Shell Programming Course Overview

IBM AIX Korn Shell Programming training course is designed to give delegates practical experience in developing and writing AIX shell scripts. Most of the built-in shell commands are introduced together with the main program control structures. This course is not suitable for C shell programmers.

The delegate will learn and acquire skills as follows:

  • 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
  • Writing scripts to trap user interrupts
  • User defined Functions
  • Developing menu-driven shell scripts

Who will the Course Benefit?

Programmers, administrators and support personnel who need to understand existing shell scripts, automate procedures and write their own utilities.

The course assumes knowledge of the AIX Operating System to the level covered in the AIX Basics course. Some programming experience may also prove advantageous.

Course Objectives

To provide the skills needed to develop and customise shell programs.

Examinations

This AIX Shell Programming course, together with the AIX Basics, AIX System Administration - Part I and AIX System Administration - Part II courses, cover the major topics for the C9010-022: IBM AIX Administration V1 exam.

Attending this course will help gain some of the skills and product knowledge outlined in the exam objectives. Studying this course and its associated reference materials can form part of the preparation to achieve certification. Experience, practice, self-study and aptitude are also key requirements for exam success.

Before taking any exam, ensure you have the recommended experience. The IBM website lists all exam requirements and these are updated regularly.

Course Certification

Our independent Oracle, Solaris & Red Hat Linux curriculums helps prepare delegates for official certification.

See what our clients say . . .

Technical course content was excellent and just what I required regards procedures, functions and packages, so the exercises were very useful and learning the syntax and formats and commands. Plenty of time was allocated for practical exercises and writing code which I would encourage on future courses. The theory was much needed also and improved my understanding of PL/SQL I have already seen in daily tasks. The trainer was very knowledgeable and took time to explain sections as required and answers to any questions. The folder will be very beneficial in practicing back at work to consolidate these Oracle skills.
