With regard to the episodes on BASH and scripting, can you do scripting in a Windows 7 command line or with Windows 10 in the Secure shell?
BASH and Scripting
I believe Windows 10 has a built in BASH terminal, but you have to enable it first. this is from memory, so you might have to modify these steps: Turn on Developer Mode-- Start > Settings > Updates & Security > For Developers > enable Developer Mode. Next, Go into your control panel > Programs > Turn Windows Features on/off > Find Windows Subsystem for Linux (Beta). Then you should see it in your start menu. See below screen shot with BASH running in background:
Windows 7 does not have a BASH terminal, it has a command prompt with is i think DOS based and way backwards from the rest of the world.
If you have a remote server, you can SSH into a Linux server with a program called PuTTY.
If you know VMware or Virtual Box, you can install a simple Linux distro within a Virtual Machine.
Hope this helps.
Thank you Joseph.
As for the command prompt being way backwards, when I started using a computer, the cmd prompt was all I had. My first computer did not have a HDD, it only had 2 5.25 floppy drives. One for your DOS disk and one for your work. So, I guess I just automatically fall back on what I grew up with so to speak.
But, I understand what you are saying.
