So I'm new bash scripting, and what I want to do is write a script that allows me to rip subtitles from various .mkv files using mkvextract(if there is a better tool let me know).
I don't have a good idea about how to go about this, so I'm hoping to be nudged in the right direction, I want to learn this after all. Would I be better off doing this in another language?
My thinking is you run either:
in a terminal to do all files in a directory.
I want to say the contents would look like
mkvextract tracks (some file variabe) 3:(same file variable again)
But I don't think that works. Also, any scripting exercise websites?
