Shell Script Examples

Bourne Again Shell (bash) is the common shell used in Unix/Linux based Operating Systems. Also these days, even Windows OS also comes with an option called Power Shell.  This post will list out some basic exercises that a shell can do. Do follow this blog with more number of exercises.
To run a bash file, you can use either of these following commands
  • bash file.sh
  • sh file.sh
  • ./file.sh (in this case the file.sh should be made executable)
For making executable file, use this command chmod 755 file.sh
1. A Shell to Handle a File, rename a given file, compress it and move it to a newfolder and decompress it in the newfolder
   1: #!/bin/bash
   2: touch pri.txt
   3: ls >; pri.txt
   4: mv pri.txt file.doc
   5: tar zcvf compress.tar.gz file.doc
   6: mkdir newfolder/
   7: cp compress.tar.gz newfolder/
   8: cd newfolder/
   9: tar zxvf compress.tar.gz

2. A shell to find a particular string from a file and redirect it to another file.
 
#!/bin/bash
echo "Enter a string to be searched in the file : "
read search
echo "Enter a file name  : "
read name_file
grep $search $name_file > found.txt
cat found.txt

3. A shell to read a variable and process it mathematically (use of add operation).
#!/bin/bash
echo -n "Enter 1st number : "
read a
echo -n "Enter 2nd number : "
read b
c=`expr $a + $b`
echo "The value is $c"

4. A shell to Greet the user based on the system time.

#!/bin/bash
dat=`date +%H`
if [ "$dat" -lt 12 ]; 
then
echo "Good Morning"
elif [ "$dat" -lt 17 ] ;
then
echo "Good Afternoon"
else
echo "Good Evening"
fi
5. A shell to create a menu based system to control multiple commands using case esac block
#!/bin/bash
echo "What do you want to know ?"
echo "1. Today's Date"
echo "2. Today's Day"
echo "3. Time"
echo "4. Current Month"
echo "5. Current Year"
echo "6. Current Week"
echo "Enter a number to choose from the menu"
read ch
case "$ch" in
1)
dat=`date +%d`
echo "Today's date is $dat"
;;
2)
day=`date +%a`
echo "Today is $day"
;;
3)
time=`date +%T`
echo "The time now is $time"
;;
4)
mon=`date +%b`
echo "The month is $mon"
;;
5)
year=`date +%Y`
echo "The year is $year"
;;
6)
week=`date +%W`
echo "This is the $week th of the year"
;;
*)
echo "Try again"
esac
6. A shell to find the number of document files in a given directory using for loop.
#!/bin/bash
count=0;
for i in *.doc
do
count=`expr $count + 1`
done
echo "There are $count documents"



Try running these examples and get the use of SHELL.

Installing TexLive 2019 in Ubuntu 18.04

Installation of TexLive 2019 in Linux (Ubuntu 18.04 LTS)
TeX (Tech)

Installation of TexLive 2019

Please watch the video for full installation



I used .iso file to download, the Total size is 3.3GB for Linux,

and i used the torrent file to download, it took me just 20 min to download the entire .iso file

Extract the .iso file to a folder and open a terminal

$] sudo ./install-tl
(it goes into a terminal mode, which is faster compared to the GUI Mode)

$] sudo ./install-tl -gui
after the installation, set the PATH, MANPATH and INFOPATH as suggested by LATEX

export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/texlive/2019/bin/x86_64-linux
export MANPATH=/usr/local/texlive/2019/texmf-dist/doc/man
export INFOPATH=/usr/local/texlive/2019/texmf-dist/doc/info

put these lines in to the /home/pradeepkumar/.bashrc

$] gedit /home/pradeepkumar/.bashrc
We have installed TexLive 2019 and texstudio.

To install texstudio

$] sudo apt install texstudio
The look and feel of TexStudio looks like this image.

Implementing a new system call in Kernel version 2.6.32

A system call is used by application or user programs to request service from the operating systems. Since the user programs does not have direct access to the kernel whereas the OS has the direct access. OS can access the hardware through system calls only.The following files has to be modified for implementing a system call/usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/arch/x86/kernel/syscall_table_32.S/usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/arch/x86/include/asm/unistd_32.h/usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/include/linux/syscalls.h/usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/MakefileNew set of files to be createdCreate a new directory newcall/ inside the path “/usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/” Create new files Makefile, newcall.c and put them in the /usr/src/linux-2.6.32.5/newcall/ folder Create new user files (in any folder of Linux) to test the system call
