LXer: Scripting, Part Two: Looping for Fun and Profit

Published at LXer:

You energy-conserving* system administrators will enjoy learning to use loops in your scripts. Looping is a technique that allows you to repeat a process or set of commands indefintely or until the loop exhausts a particular list of items. For example, you want to copy a particular file to everyones home directory. How do you do it? Dont say that you have a junior-level administrator do it. The correct answer is that youd create a looping script to handle the job.
