Bash Scripting: automating repetitive command line tasks

By Sibyl Schaefer

One of my current tasks is to develop workflows for digital preservation procedures. These workflows begin with the acquisition of files – either disk images or logical file transfers – both of which end up on a designated server. Once acquired, the images (or files) are checked for viruses. If clean, they are bagged using Bagit and then copied over to a different server for processing.1 This work is all done at the command line, and as you can imagine, it gets quite repetitive.
