didn’t learn a lot because we never really had to use it. We mainly just did back-up’s for the system. When I started my associates’ degree through Coastline Community College I took a basic UNIX class and they taught use a little about scripting. It was interesting but it didn’t capture my eye. It wasn’t until I got here to Germany that I started working in the scripting department of my “IT” field. Now we do scripting on Windows not UNIX so I am sure it is a little different. When I saw that one of the options for this paper had to deal with scripting I decided that it was for me. I am looking forward to researching this topic and finding out what differences and similarities scripting has from UNIX to Windows. When I read about UNIX text editors in regards to shell scripting, I think of writing running scripts for a running operating system (OS). What I believe script writing refers to is the action of making a number of running commands for an OS so that you don’t have to do that

action every time you start your OS. Whether this is 100% true or not I am looking forward to researching more about the topic of script writing with text editors. Some questions I have that I want to get answered are “What are the commands to use for UNIX to start and complete a script?” What are the differences and similarities to script writing using gedit with UNIX and Windows? Is script writing difficult for first time users on UNIX? These are a few questions that I hope I can answer through my research. I am sure more will pop up for discussion during my research. I plan to conduct a lot of my research online and also some from the class text book. I also work with a lot of contractors who have a good background in this topic, so I have their brains to pick. I can already see the long detailed information I am going to run into that I will probably not understand fully and will have to research on also.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
