Getting Started : Linux Shell Scripting Language - I

What is a Shell..?

    Most of us know the fact that computer understands the language of 0’s and 1’s i.e. Binary language. Whenever we enter any command in the text format, it gets translated to computer-readable form and the processed output which is in binary format gets converted to human-readable form and gets displayed on the screen in the form of texts. Shell performs all these translations.

Before GUI environments were introduced in computer systems, CLI was the only way using which an user could interact and operate the computer system.
