Bash is a very powerful command interpreter. You can definitely improve your productivity a great deal if you know how to make Bash scripts.

There are a few good howtos and tutorials around the net, the most widely acclaimed being the advanced bash scripting guide (http://tldp.org/LDP/abs/html/) .

Hope this answers your question :)
