Sample text

Precision limits the total number of characters printed for strings; for f­ loating-­point numbers, it limits the number of characters printed after the decimal point. 5s\n" John Samantha John Saman You can specify both width and precision; if you do this, the precision is used to determine what to print, and the width then influences whether the shell pads the output. Padding can be controlled a little. The two most common ways to control padding are to specify flags, which are put before the width.

Whether being used interactively or from a script, the shell’s basic operation is the same. It reads lines of input, which it breaks into words (usually around spaces), performs substitutions and expansions, and finally executes commands. Much of the shell’s power comes from the fact that the shell has rules for modifying the words it is given to generate commands. This section gives a brief overview of these rules, and the ways to keep the shell from performing these modifications inappropriately.

Quotes can be single quotes or double quotes; in both cases, the shell does not use distinct left and right quotes, but uses the same quotes on both sides. [On a slightly related note, text surrounded by back quotes (`) is not being quoted; that is one of the syntaxes used for embedding the output of shell commands, much as variables are substituted. ] Most commonly, you simply enclose a string in single quotes (') to prevent the shell from modifying it. Here’s a review of the hello world example, using quoting: $ set -x $ echo 'hello, world' + echo hello, world hello, world $ echo 'hello, world' + echo hello, world hello, world $ echo ' hello, world' + echo hello, world hello, world Single quotes prevent the shell from modifying input, including word splitting.
