What is UNIX shell scripting? Can you provide UNIX shell scripting tutorial?

A shell script is nothing but a text file with UNIX command for file manipulation, program execution, printing text, and so on. A shell script is written for the shell, or command line interpreter, of an operating system. Often, writing a shell script is much quicker than writing the equivalent code in other programming languages such as C. The many advantages include easy program, file selection, quick start, interactive debugging and much more.
