Question Bash Files


Hi
I am totally new to linux i was recomended by a friend to get it. Anyway i have SuSe 10.1 and im stuck. The closest i came to programming with windows was with Batch Files using DOS.(i have heard of Bash files hence the title are they similar) Is there anyone willing to help me get started with a Linux equivalent of Batch files (or similar) im willing to learn and i would be very gratefull.
Thanks
HLA91

Bash is essentially your commandline. You have the ability to create scripts of commands, which are essentially like the batch files in DOS.

Here's a good starter guide to bash scripting.

..and yet another link

That one is a more advanced guide, however I've found it's more useful as a reference once you already know the basics. Definitely good to keep around somewhere.
