Today I decided to apply my little knowledge of Bash scripting and automate a task I perform routinely for my Markets project. What is also interesting is the fact I am testing my DIY Acoustic Box for my Microphone (Image Below). Do share this article and if you have questions or suggestions, feel free to add that to the comment below.
I have been using Linux for the past 10 years and will in no way consider myself a Power User. I can do a thing or two, I have a little amount of system administration skills and I am not afraid of the terminal. Running a few commands here and there is something every Linux enthusiast is comfortable doing. Being a Software developer for a couple of years, I am usually intrigued by anything that looks cryptic and feels like programming and so the terminal plays a big part in my everyday existence.
Recently, I have been working a lot with the Bash scripting language/tool. My bash programming isn’t that legendary but with the help of Google and Stackoverflow, I can easily look up syntaxes for Bash statements and eventually get my intended task done. I recently had a task in the office that required me to work with a 200MB+ sized file. CSV files are the simplest file format you get to work with in most programming environments. Usually when you want to generate a report that can easily be opened in a spreadsheet application and also easily consumed by a machine.
