Answer / praveen tiwari

Shell script allows the user to perform his day-to-day
tasks sooner.Even a Shell Environment doesnt need a
graphical environment to write a script. So what happens is
it will be more easy for programmer to write shell scripts
on Command line environment , where it doesnt costs more
resources comparable to Graphical environment.

For example : Backup Scripts , Keeping Log files of system.
shell scripts makes you the task easier !!
And to automate the script in Linux we perform cron tasks.
Once cron has to be set. It performs operations automatically

Answer / jrgalaura

Another one would be to automate routinary/housekeeping
tasks especially those long commands we keep on typing
everyday or weekly - we could write all those series of
commands in a script and just run that script anytime we
need it instead of writing all those hard to memorize
commands all the time.
