Supporting the Information Search and Discovery Process with the Bash-Shell

Schmidt, Andreas ORCID iD icon


The bash shell contains a wealth of useful programs for examining, filtering, transforming and also analyzing data. In conjunction with the underlying filter and pipe architecture, powerful data transformations can be performed interactively and iteratively within a very short time, which can for example support the knowledge discovery process with further dedicated tools like mathematica, R, etc. In the tutorial presented here, the most useful command-line tools from the GNU coreutils and their interaction will be introduced on the basis of a continuous scenario and clarified by means of two
in-depth practical exercises in which the participants have to convict a murderer using a series of available police documents - exciting!
