The point of it was to create scripts that could be run to do anything that needed to be done. But since not all Unix users were programmers, other shells were created. For example, the C shell csh became very popular in the s and the Korn shell ksh later still. But in , Brian Fox wrote Bash.

It was created to replace the Bourne shell. But it added to it most of the extra features that the C shell and Korn shell offered. It has become something of the standard shell.

But what is most important is that it is syntactically the same as the Bourne shell, and so can run all the same scripts. Shell Script Example The Bourne shell scripting language is fairly intuitive.

This is a simple example that reports whether the script was run with a command-line argument or not. But in the first line of a script, when followed by an exclamation character, it tells the shell which program should run the script.

Another common scripting language is Perl, and if you were writing a script with it, it would start with the line! The stuff after the exclamation mark is the complete path to the program.

Variables in sh always start with a dollar sign. If it does, the script uses the echo command to output what that argument is.

If not, the script prints out that no argument was found. Learning Shell Scripting People have been using the Bourne shell for a very long time, so there are a lot of resources for learning it.

The file system hierarchy contained machine services and devices such as printers , terminals , or disk drives , providing a uniform interface, but at the expense of occasionally requiring additional mechanisms such as ioctl and mode flags to access features of the hardware that did not fit the simple "stream of bytes" model.

The Plan 9 operating system pushed this model even further and eliminated the need for additional mechanisms. Unix also popularized the hierarchical file system with arbitrarily nested subdirectories, originally introduced by Multics.

Other common operating systems of the era had ways to divide a storage device into multiple directories or sections, but they had a fixed number of levels, often only one level. Several major proprietary operating systems eventually added recursive subdirectory capabilities also patterned after Multics.

Making the command interpreter an ordinary user-level program, with additional commands provided as separate programs, was another Multics innovation popularized by Unix. Since the shell and OS commands were "just another program", the user could choose or even write their own shell.

New commands could be added without changing the shell itself. Unix's innovative command-line syntax for creating modular chains of producer-consumer processes pipelines made a powerful programming paradigm coroutines widely available.

Many later command-line interpreters have been inspired by the Unix shell.Letters and numbers are used, along with characters like underscore and dot characters. Shotts, Jr. Temporal Database Management - Christian S.
