Programming for the Command Line

  • Chris F. A. Johnson


This book is about programming with the shell, not about using it at the command line. You will not find information about editing the command line, creating a command prompt (the PS1 variable), or retrieving commands from your interactive history. This chapter is about scripts that will mostly be useful at the command line rather than in other scripts.
