grep kurz & gut ist die erste deutschsprachige Befehlsreferenz zu grep, dem mächtigen Such- und Filterungswerkzeug unter Unix. Jeder, der sich ausführlich zu den Möglichkeiten, die in grep stecken, informieren möchte, ist mit diesem Buch bestens bedient. Er erfährt, wie viele alltägliche Aufgaben mit grep ausgeführt werden können, von der Mail-Filterung über geschicktes Log-Management bis hin zur Malware-Analyse. Der Befehl grep stellt viele verschiedene Möglichkeiten bereit, Textstrings in einer Datei oder einem Ausgabestream zu finden. Diese Flexibilität macht grep zu einem mächtigen Tool, um das Vorhandensein von Informationen in Dateien zu ermitteln. Im Allgemeinen ist der Befehl grep nur dafür gedacht, Textausgaben oder Textdateien zu durchsuchen. Sie können auch Binärdateien (oder andere Nicht-Textdateien) durchsuchen, aber das Tool ist in dem Fall eingeschränkt. Tricks zum Durchsuchen von Binärdateien mit grep (also die Verwendung von String-Befehlen) werden ebenso in grep kurz & gut aufgezeigt. Sollte der Leser bereits mit der Arbeit mit grep vertraut sein, hilft ihm grep kurz & gut dabei, seine Kenntnisse aufzufrischen und mit grep besonders effizient zu arbeiten. Für grep-Einsteiger ist das vorliegende Buch eine hervorragende Möglichkeit, grep von Grund auf zu lernen und klug anzuwenden.
Create and maintain powerful Bash scripts for automation and administration. Key Features Get up and running with Linux shell scripting using real-world examples Leverage command-line techniques and methodologies to automate common yet complex administration tasks A practical guide with exposure to scripting constructs and common scripting patterns Book Description Shell scripts allow us to program commands in chains and have the system execute them as a scripted event, just like batch files. This book will start with an overview of Linux and Bash shell scripting, and then quickly deep dive into helping you set up your local environment, before introducing you to tools that are used to write shell scripts. The next set of chapters will focus on helping you understand Linux under the hood and what Bash provides the user. Soon, you will have embarked on your journey along the command line. You will now begin writing actual scripts instead of commands, and will be introduced to practical applications for scripts. The final set of chapters will deep dive into the more advanced topics in shell scripting. These advanced topics will take you from simple scripts to reusable, valuable programs that exist in the real world. The final chapter will leave you with some handy tips and tricks and, as regards the most frequently used commands, a cheat sheet containing the most interesting flags and options will also be provided. After completing this book, you should feel confident about starting your own shell scripting projects, no matter how simple or complex the task previously seemed. We aim to teach you how to script and what to consider, to complement the clear-cut patterns that you can use in your daily scripting challenges. What you will learn Understand Linux and Bash basics as well as shell scripting fundamentals Learn to write simple shell scripts that interact with Linux operating system Build, maintain, and deploy scripts in a Linux environment Learn best practices for writing shell scripts Avoid common pitfalls associated with Bash scripting Gain experience and the right toolset to write your own complex shell scripts Who this book is for This book targets new and existing Linux system administrators, Windows system administrators or developers who are interested in automating administrative tasks. No prior shell scripting experience is needed but in case you do this book will make a pro quickly. Readers should have a basic understanding of the command line.

Shell is a program that gives the user direct interaction with the operating system. Scripts are collections of commands that are stored in a file. The shell can read this file and act on the commands as if they were typed on the keyboard. Shell scripting is used to automate day-to-day administration, and for testing or product development tasks. This book covers Bash, GNU Bourne Again SHell, preparing you to work in the exciting world of Linux shell scripting. We start with an introduction to the Shell environment and explain basic commands used in Shell. Next we move on to check, kill, and control the execution of processes in Linux OS. Further, we teach you about the filter tools available in Linux and explain standard output and standard errors devices. Then we will ensure you understand Shell's interpretation of commands and get a firmer grasp so you use them in practice. Next, you'll experience some real-world essentials such as debugging and perform Shell arithmetic fluently. Then you'll take a step ahead and learn new and advanced topics in Shell scripting, such as starting up a system and customizing a Linux system. Finally, you'll get to understand the capabilities of scripting and learn about Grep, Stream Editor, and Awk. Style and approach This practical book will go from the very basics of shell scripting to complex, customized automation. The idea behind this book is to be as practical as possible and give you the look and feel of what real-world scripting is like.

This is a book for people who teach programming. We have been using Moodle/VPL in Computer Sciences and Engineering courses at UFSC for some years now and this book reflects our experiences. It is not only a step-by-step manual for the novice teacher wanting to start to use VPL in her lectures, but also a detailed report, describing experiences that anyone can reproduce, showing all the possibilities that VPL can offer in conjunction with Moodle. In this book we will go step-by-step through the whole process of building and configuring programming assignments using VPL: - beginning at the simplest programming exercise, where VPL acts simply as an homogeneous, Moodle-integrated programming and running environment and allows the teacher to plan and perform both lab activities that require student attendance and assignments for distance courses, without worrying if the required IDE, compiler or operating system version is properly installed at the lab or the student's home, - up to complex programming projects where VPL controls a set of source code files, some provided by the teacher and some developed by the student, acts as coding style and plagiarism judge and automatically evaluates and grades the projects, running tests based upon a set of test cases developed by the teacher. "I believe this book will mark a breakthrough in the material available for professors who would like to start using VPL. The book may also be valuable for those who are currently using the tool, showing them many utilities that probably they have never imagined. From my point of view...

You've experienced the shiny, point-and-click surface of your Linux computer—now dive below and explore its depths with the power of the command line. The Linux Command Line takes you from your very first terminal keystrokes to writing full programs in Bash, the most popular Linux shell. Along the way you'll learn the timeless skills handed down by generations of gray-bearded, mouse-shunning gurus: file navigation, environment configuration, command chaining, pattern matching with regular expressions, and more. In addition to that practical knowledge, author William Shotts reveals the philosophy behind these tools and the rich heritage that your desktop Linux machine has inherited from Unix supercomputers of yore. As you make your way through the book's short, easily-digestible chapters, you'll learn how to: –Create and delete files, directories, and symlinks –Administer your system, including networking, package installation, and process management –Use standard input and output, redirection, and pipelines –Edit files with Vi, the world’s most popular text editor –Write shell scripts to automate common or boring tasks –Slice and dice text files with cut, paste, grep, patch, and sed Once you overcome your initial "shell shock," you'll find that the command line is a natural and expressive way to communicate with your computer. Just don't be surprised if your mouse starts to gather dust.
