A shell script is just a text file with a list of commands one below the 
other. You can run direct commands in cron too, without scripts. Cron 
runs whatever you would run in the terminal or console. It is simply a 
timer to run those commands at the specific date/time intervals. It is 
generally used to carry out certain tasks unattended in the background.
