UNIX is an evergreen operating system used around the globe on workstations, servers and mobile devices. UNIX was an essential element for the development of internet and played a vital role in restructuring the standard stand-alone systems to computing networks. Unix is one of the oldest operating systems with many flavours that are still used in more than 80% of servers in the market. Unix is preferred for the security and the performance it offers. All Linux distributions like HP-UX by Hewlett Packard, IBM AIX, Oracle Solaris, and Mac OSX are UNIX based operating systems. Tedious tasks that require many lines of coding in other operating systems like Windows can be easily performed using Unix Shell Scripting.

Introduction to the UNIX commands

The operating system takes care of the management of the hardware of the device, manages the memory, and the files of the system. The different files in the UNIX file system are ordinary files, pipes, sockets, directories, special files and symbolic links. We would like to enhance the knowledge of the students to create a strong foundation in the UNIX operating system.

Command line interface with the UNIX is more flexible than the graphical or button based operating system in Windows. Let us provide the students with some of the commands to learn UNIX from the basics. Join the Unix Training in Chennai to become an expert in the technology with practical knowledge. Let us see some of the basic commands in the UNIX.


Shell is the program in the UNIX OS which is used for the primary functions of reading the commands and running the programs. Shell depends upon the text-based operations, the repetitive tasks are automated, the network connection with the machines is created and the ratio of action to the key is high. UNIX Shell Scripting Training in Chennai at FITA is conducted by the industry experts with detailed knowledge base with the technology.

Files and directories

There are three types of divisions in the structure of the file system they are Directories, ordinary files and special files. The directories and ordinary files are the same but the program used in the directory is controlled by the system. Ordinary files are the place where the user keeps all his files. The special files are the files with access to the associated devices. The read and write option is activated through the associated devices. A directory is mentioned as a tree as it saves the details of the other directories also. ‘cd’ path is the command which deals with the changes in the working directory which is used currently. CD is the short form of the change directory. The 1s path is used to take print of the specific file or directory with the listing. 1s shows the working directory which is used currently. pwd’ is the short form for printing the working directory of the user. ‘/’ is the directory which works as root to the whole file system. The relative path is the path for the location from the current location and absolute path shows the path from the root of the file system. Separation among the directories is symbolized with/on Unix and in case of the windows, it is \. ‘.’ stands for the current directory and ‘..’ stands for the directory which is located above the current directory. UNIX Training in Chennai is the best training to gain basic knowledge in the respective technology.

Filters and the pipes

‘cat’ is the command for the inputs, head is for getting the first 10 lines of the input, tail is for the last 10 lines of the input, sort is the command to sort the available inputs, WC is to make the functions of counting lines, characters and words with the inputs, command > file is for overwriting the content with the output of the command, command >> file is to append the file with the output from the command, < stands for redirecting the input to the command by the operator, first | second is the command with pipeline to get the output from the first command and use the output as the input for the second one. Pipelines make the shell as a simple one. UNIX Shell Scripting Training in Chennai provides real-time examples with simple projects which makes the learning as an interesting task.


‘For’ is the command for repetition in the list, for command requires a variable to use a thing which is currently working, $name is used to expand a variable, The variable expansion becomes complex if the wild card characters like “*, ?” is used. For the purpose of editing and repeating the up arrow keys are used from the scroll up to the previous command, use the option of history to see the recent commands and ! number for command with a number.

Shell scripts

The commands are stored in the files for the purpose of repetitive actions and this file is called a shell script. The commands which are saved in a file are called a bash file name. ‘$@’ says about the arguments with the command line in the shell script, $1 means the argument with a command line in the first line, $2 refers to the argument in the second line. If the values consist of spaces then quotes are placed in a variable in UNIX. The flexibility with the UNIX is the users decide about the file to be processed.

The latest version of UNIX is PDP-11/70 and the important aspect of this version is its simplicity. The core memory of the system is 768K bytes inclusive of code and tables for the data. Join the UNIX Training in Chennai at FITA to learn the latest changes with an insight into the industrial knowledge to excel in the respective job role.
