Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

Trouble with scripting.......
Below is the script which I wrote but giving the error .i : COMMAND NOT FOUND IN LINE 5
while test $i != 0
i=`expr $i - 1`
PLEASE HELP ME
you have a root directory represented by a /. All of the subdirs inside are named as /dir1, /dir2, /dir_whatever.
All of these subdirs can have subdirs, like /dir1/subdir1 /dir5/subdir9 and so on. This structure can be represented as a tree - beginning from its root - so usually it is called directory tree. All of the available stuff in a linux can be found in a directory, somewhere in this directory tree.
I think you need to go back and look at your notes on testing strings and testing numbers in bash. May I also add, (()) is preferred over [] when doing arithmetic tests as standard
mathematical symbols may be used, ie. like <, >, etc
hey I need one more script
That will print the wishes like gud morning,eveng n night.....whenever system gets booted.......?
it should print automatically
If you need a script, then WRITE IT YOURSELF. You've been pointed to bash scripting guides before, and can easily find lots more via Google. We'll be glad to HELP you, but you need to show some effort on your part. Post what you've written/done, and where you're stuck.
