Overview/Description
Learn shell scripts for Unix systems and discover various ways of filtering command line data.

During this course, you will learn to configure and execute a shell script and run Unix commands as background processes. Next, explore common shell script constructs, such as variables, conditional execution, and loops, to iterate through command sets. Examine various ways to filter and format commands and command line data. Finally, run regular expressions (regex) to search and filter data via grep and Awk commands.
