This presentation starts with some preliminary thoughts about software integration.
Shell scripting means knowing your system and the applications you have available that can do the dirty stuff for you.
BASH is all about gluing... so what are the ways we can use to control resources and integrate software through scripting?
Some set of "advanced" features of BASH are explained and I'm sure you'll find them very handy to enhance your scripts. The BASH recipes can be used for common daily tasks of end users or administrators.
"Hacking" web sites can also be done using BASH and some command line tools. We'll talk a bit about it.
Learn also with real examples explained, namely:
- fetch music streams from web URL's to disk, from a popular Portuguese radio station
- emulate a user/replicate online banking tasks and extract values automatically, with a real bank example (by means of "reverse engineering" web pages)
- send SMS from command line, using a mobile operator's site (by means of "reverse engineering" web pages)
This is not intended to be a BASH tutorial for beginners, neither a simple plain tutorial. It's more a kind of BASH "hacking" guide.
