Shell scripts are an efficient way to interact with your machine and manage your files and system operations. With just a few lines of code, your computer will do exactly what you want it to do. But you can also use shell scripts for many other essential (and not-so-essential) tasks.

This second edition of Wicked Cool Shell Scripts offers a collection of useful, customizable, and fun shell scripts for solving common problems and personalizing your computing environment. Each chapter contains ready-to-use scripts and explanations of how they work, why you'd want to use them, and suggestions for changing and expanding them. You'll find a mix of classic favorites, like a disk backup utility that keeps your files safe when your system crashes, a password manager, a weather tracker, and several games, as well as 23 brand-new scripts, including-

- ZIP code lookup tool that reports the city and state
- Bitcoin address information retriever
- suite of tools for working with cloud services like Dropbox and iCloud
- for renaming and applying commands to files in bulk

Whether you want to save time managing your system or just find new ways to goof off, these scripts are wicked cool!
