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.
