Well, normally you'd start with 'bash', that being the default env shell on Linux:

Don't forget, at any time you can type 'help' within a bash shell and get a list of the available commands, and then type 'help ...' to get more help on some command.

One thing to get familiar with when scripting is regular expressions, also coined regex. Here is a cheat sheet which gives good coverage of many of the operators, and here is a more encompassing guide. Also good to read the official glibc manual regarding regular expressions. And it's a very complicated topic. I have to admit that not needing extensive script support to do things like manage files and directories, I'm very poor at this talent.
