    Hopefully bash or ksh93. Csh is a minefield. Csh Programming Considered Harmful
    There are several Live linux distributions; you can boot from a cd without modifying your hard drive. Puppy Linux Community Home - Getting Started

    Just google "bash" or "ksh93" you should get enough hits on page one to find a tutorial that suits your learning style.

    Hi Kitaman,

    Thank you very much Kitaman, I am going to download Puppy Linux from the link you gave me and install it.

    So your advice is better to learn and practice bash and ksh93...

    These shells will work with oracle pl/sql right.

    Please give me an idea to learn these things fast..
    and what they will expect

    Thanks,
    Ganesh

    I agree with Kitaman on both using a Linux that is non-destructive to your existing machine (so you don't need to sacrafice the functionality of your PC in order to learn) and also that Linux is close enough to most flavors of Unix that it makes a decent learning platform.

    Without knowing a lot more about the expectations of the group that you are applying to join there is no way that I know of to coach you... Without more insight into the position they are trying to fill, there is no way I can guess what skills they'll expect or desire. Without knowing what version or versions of Unix they are using, I don't know what technical skills are appropriate or necessary.

    If you can ask specific questions, I'm sure that someone can answer them for you. If you can post some more information about where you are applying and especially if you can post their requirements, then I'm sure that someone here at DBForums can give you more specific help. Without more information, I don't know how to help you.

    In theory, theory and practice are identical. In practice, theory and practice are unrelated.

    My approach to learning something new is to find a specific problem first, then try to solve it one line at a time.
    Most bash or ksh statements can be typed at the command line and tested.
    For instance:
    Code:
    a=abcdefgh
    echo $a|cut -c 3,4
    echo $a |cut -c 3-
    Presumably most scripts you will write will create the environment, supply the input, and re-direct the output to a file or printer.
    Read all of the threads in this section of the forum. Most of the questions are about how sql programs interact with the shell.

    I hope your interview is with Infinite Computer. For all the others you listed, shell scripting is a primary requirement. In some of the ad's the word shell seems to mean any non compiled language.

    I think that the short answer is no, it is not upgradeable. If you boot Puppy Linux from a cd or usb stick, and save your files/scripts on the hard drive, your files will always be available, but you need a hard drive partition in order to install Red Hat or something similar.

    Try the cd in another computer. If it works, you will have to determine what is different about your computer; if it doesn't work, make a new cd.

    Presumably there is some incompatibility between the operating system and your particular hardware.
    You might follow this link and try another distribution
