Linux Operation System as a base for Spatial Ecology Computing

Linux is a generic term refering to Unix-like computer operating systems based on the Linux kernel. Their development is one of the most prominent examples of free and open source software collaboration; typically all the underlying source code can be used, freely modified, and redistributed, both commercially and non-commercially, by anyone under licenses such as the GNU

In this site an introduction will be given to the Unix/Linux Shell using Bash language to manipulate data rather than interacting with/setting the operation system. The final aim is to build a stand-alone implementation / processes that include a combination of bash/R/AWK/gnuplot commands that can be run several times using the features of each software.
In this part of the wiki-training site we provide various sections:

Unix/Linux Shell - Bash Language Lectures


A nice a way to start is to use this web command-line simulator.

command-line bootcamp

Bash Tutorials

Bash exercises

You can open the script by kate and copy/paste the lines to the terminal.

You can can also interact with the shell using other commands and inserting comments in the editor.
You can run it directly by:


The files that are used in these exercises are also used in the study case.
Try to explore the file and understand very well the data structure in order to follow the study case script in each step.
