Webinar 2016 UNIX shell expansion: proper use and advanced forms

Jump to navigationJump to search

This talk will go over proper use of bash expansions (e.g., variable substitution) and their less well known forms (e.g., the remove matching prefix/suffix pattern). The former will mainly concern itself with how to use proper quoting to avoid as many word splitting issues as possible and the later with a whirlwind tour of the less common options available.
