Unix Shell Scripting And Unix Basic Knowledge
Hello Friends, One of my trainer told me that for Automation Testing, we just require the basic knowledge of Unix OS. Someone other told me that you should be good at Unix Shell Scripting. Means good knowledge, how we create function and other things in Unix Shell scripting.
So please tell me for Automation Testing,at what extent I should learn Unix Shell scripting.
Thanks & Regards,
