A scripting language, script language or extension language is a programming language that allows control of one or more software applications. "Scripts" are distinct from the core code of the application, as they are usually written in a different language and are often created or at least modified by the end-user. Scripts are often interpreted from source code or bytecode, whereas the applications they control are traditionally compiled to native machine code.

The name "script" is derived from the written script of the performing arts, in which dialogue is set down to be spoken by human actors. Early script languages were often called batch languages or job control languages. Such early scripting languages were created to shorten the traditional edit-compile-link-run process.

This page will lead you to all the shell scripting made.

It has the scripts which includes:
1. Bourne Shell Scripts
2. Powershell Scripts

Latest Shell Script:

• The goal was to develop a database as a UNIX shell script using GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) as the backend encryption engine.
• Provide a menu driven script.
• Manage a database to store authentication information securely.
• Encrypts and decrypts the database before and after each function performed.
• Improve the security of the system it overwrites the plain text before it is deleted.

Before you can use Gnupg you need to create key pair by "gpg --gen-key"
To encrypt "gpg --encrypt --default-recipient-self filename"
And this will create filename.gpg
Make sure to remove the plain text file, to be secured.

And make a temporary file for all of the operation, which is a good practice
