>> Hey there Cybrarians.
00:00
>> Welcome back to the Linux+ course here at Cybrary.
00:00
>> I'm your instructor Rob Goelz.
00:00
In today's module, we're going to be moving into
00:00
Module 25 we're going to talk about BASH Scripting.
00:00
But first of all, big congratulations.
00:00
We're on the last domain,
00:00
domain 5 and so we're just going to finish strong with
00:00
these last modules and we'll be all wrapped up.
00:00
Upon completion of today's lesson,
00:00
you are going to be able to take on
00:00
the bash scripting objectives that we're going to need to
00:00
pass for the Linux plus exam and understand how
00:00
the Module 25 content
00:00
is going to map to these objectives.
00:00
What will you take away from this module?
00:00
Well, you're going to understand how
00:00
bash scripting works,
00:00
how we use shell scripting in bash,
00:00
we're going to talk about how bash scripting
00:00
can help to automate repetitive tasks,
00:00
and we're going to see how we can do things like reduce
00:00
administrative overhead by scripting data entry,
00:00
we're also going to see how we can create
00:00
conditional statements to test
00:00
your code before we run it,
00:00
and we're going to see how we can use
00:00
loops and looping to
00:00
iterate over lists and groups of information.
00:00
In this module, we're going to
00:00
examine the bash shell environment.
00:00
We're going to look at sourcing scripts and looking
00:00
at permissions for bash scripts.
00:00
We're going to see how we can add
00:00
comments to scripts and give
00:00
a little bit of documentation
00:00
to the scripts and COBie right.
00:00
We're going to see how we perform
00:00
redirection and piping,
00:00
and then we're going to learn about file globbing and
00:00
shell expansion as well as escape characters.
00:00
We're going to see how we can read input using
00:00
positional parameters and examine
00:00
exit codes we can set in our bash scripts.
00:00
Next, we're going to cover conditional tests
00:00
and conditional statements.
00:00
Finally, we're going to learn how to loop in bash.
00:00
But with that, in this lesson,
00:00
we covered the bash scripting
00:00
objectives on the Linux plus exam and
00:00
how module of 25 content
00:00
is going to map to these objectives.
00:00
Thanks so much for being here and I look
00:00
forward to seeing you in the next lesson.
