2.1.1 Introduction to Data Fetching
Module 2. Data Fetching
Having learned the foundations of working with the Unix shell, we are now ready to dive into the ﬁrst part of the data processing pipeline, namely the fetching and generation of data from diverse data sources.
As parts of this topic we will learn how to obtain data from the internet, retrieve records from a database, send or receive data to or from a remote host, examine history and contributors in conﬁguration management records, locate ﬁles meeting speciﬁc criteria, examine executable ﬁles and libraries, examine and manipulate archives, obtain data from graphical user interfaces, and also how to generate numeric sequences or blocks of data.
