python/shell scripting


Hi,

I have enrolled for a shell scripting course, but searching through the net, I read somewhere that people have abandoned shell scripting for python.

Is that so? Does it mean for a beginner, it is waste of time learning shell scripting?

Absolutely not; the shell eg bash is how you talk to the OS, either in individual cmds or saved into shell files.
Python is another language with more advanced capabilities, but its not the OS interface in the same way.
Here's a good bash tutorial http://rute.2038bug.com/index.html.gz
