These tests can require days or weeks to complete and the nature of the test is often extremely repetitive as the same action is repeated many times over. Repetitive power reboot regression testing provides a good example of a typical product development lab test. In order to streamline this type of repetitive testing, Bash Shell Script can be used to automate the test process.
