This text is a brief description of the features that are present in the Bash shell (version 3.2, 28 September 2006). This is Edition 3.2, last updated 28 September 2006, of The GNU Bash Reference Manual , for Bash , Version 3.2. Bash contains features that appear in other popular shells, and some features that only appear in Bash. Some of the shells that Bash has borrowed concepts from are the Bourne Shell ( ‘sh’ ), the Korn Shell ( ‘ksh’ ), and the C-shell ( ‘csh’ and its successor, ‘tcsh’ ). The following menu breaks the features up into categories based upon which one of these other shells inspired the feature. This manual is meant as a brief introduction to features found in Bash.
Instalment 2: - How I use POSIX utilities to process text One of the problems I have very often is that I would like to extract usable links from a very large web page the source code of which looks messy (when I look at it using "View Source"). Have you ever looked at a cool web page with nice visual effects and the first thing that comes to your mind is "How did he do that? I would also like to have those effects on my own site." Or otherwise the page has lots of links to pretty pictures and you just want the links without the other "fat".
Using Bash's History Effectively I will attempt here to focus on only one feature of Bash, its command history. There are other good documents on the other features of Bash. If you're interested in anything other than the command history/recall, then this document really isn't going to fulfill your needs. Okay, so let's get into it!
