LXer: Teach your Grandmother to write scripts

Published at LXer:

Regular readers of The Linux Rain will know that I'm keen on writing simple shell scripts to automate repetitive and complicated tasks. Some of those scripts are for terminal use, others for GUI applications. They all have this in common: they reduce lots of keystrokes and mouse-clicks to a single keyboard shortcut or a single click (on an icon or a menu item).Power users in the corporate world and sysadmins use scripts to save time and effort. Seniors like me do it to save effort and because it's a simpler way to interact with a computer, and we really like keeping things simple.
