Time for some Code - Shell Script Collection
I started programming in 1986 and largely owe my scripting expertise to Chris Bertin, who I believe works for HP. I found a script of his on a XePIX Gator-L on which I learned to program in C and Shell and it greatly inspired me due to it's technical content and beauty. So here's a collection of scripts which I've written over the years - you can find them on the Enhyper subversion server
There's some useful scripts - the biggest and most sophisticated is envbuild which automated a three day piece of work down to minutes. It automated the building of a sophisticated database schema and the underlying disk placement. There's some neat techniques in there - one where bc(1) is used to perform an iterative calculation of Informix data spaces.
