log any changes to the system file
I am new to Linux and is currently taking a course for the class, I was assigned a project of finding or creating a script of my choice that can be executed with administrative rights. I've chosen to create a script that would log any changes to the system file and send the log to a specific location. Could anyone one direct on where to begin? I've spent several days researching and trying to understand what shell script is all about, unfortunately I am still very new at this. While my professor doesn't really teach me much, I hope I can learn more here.
