Nice explanations by anisha kaul and erictra. Especially for the people like me who has come from a poor "English" background. Highly appreciate the way anisha kaul explained.

There are so many people in this world, who dont know english but has a very good technical skills or interest in linux. I am also one of them. For those guys, this google and man pages does not gives the explanation what they want, but when they post in such a forums, they believe that they may get the information in the way they want. I knew that man pages has almost all the informations. But we are not up to that mark to understand its content. Personally i struggled a lot to understand these man pages and sometimes google too gave the same. Now it has been changed (or i have changed my mentality to read man pages) I have been started using LINUX since the beginning of 2008 and i had some idea now. So, Let me complete like this, whenever someone explains like how anisha kaul did, i feel really happy and it increases the confident of approaching this forum and even expecting the answers from the same user who solved/replied to my post last time.

Sorry if my post seemed so negative. I did not intend it to be that way. The OP was asking for something that could not have been answered/understood in a single post. This kind of knowldge and skills takes time to master. All I wanted to convey to the OP was that he should give himself time (read scripts etc) so that he could understand shells more.
BTW: Anisha you _did_ explain in one post what bash is. Hats off to you for that.
