The UNIX shell is a great tool for automating tasks. This workshop will walk you through an example of how to divide up a particular task into its component parts, use shell programs to complete those individual tasks, string together those individual tasks, and then run the entire workflow using a single command. This is not a hands-on workshop, but the files used in the workshop will be made available so that you can attempt to duplicate this later on your own.
