teaching shell scripting: cool scripting examples?
I'm going to teach on a linux lesson where I will explain how to use bash as scripting language. So I'm looking for some useful scripts to use as example after the teorical lesson. I mean something of useful and cool which should demostrate the power of bash scripting for normal windows users.
I only thinked about resizing a set of images in a folder (e.g. generating thumbnails).
Does someone has other ideas?
