    Could somebody kind of walk me through the following? What areas would one study to get a handle on what the below requirements are?

    This is for disk usage.

    I have had one course in Linux/Unix. I have had C programming.
    Is Bash ok to use?

    Create a script that sends an email message to the user specified on the command line if any of the filesystems are at more than 70% of capacity. The script should not process special filesystems as /proc . It should only process filesystems which are either locally mounted or are mounted via NFS.
    An individual email should be sent for each filesystem which is at the warning level. There should be a subject on the email with a message "Warning: Filesystem <put filesystem the>here is at <X>% of capacity" If the filesystem is at greater than 90% of capacity, the "Warning" should be changed to "Critical Warning".

    clear && echo paste url and press enter; read paste; (youtube-dl $paste) | zenity --progress --title="" --text "Downloading, please wait" --auto-close --pulsate && ans=$(zenity --file-selection); gnome-terminal -x mplayer "$ans"

    Besides bash, you probably should read up at least about df(1), mount(8), and mailx(1).
