bash-2.05b: description + notes

bash stands for ``bourne again shell''. It is the GNU replacement to the traditional Unix Bourne shell (sh) and is the default shell in systems like Linux and FreeBSD.

Bash is a sh-compatible command language interpreter that executes commands read from the standard input or from a file. Bash also incorporates useful features from the Korn and C shells (ksh and csh) which make it attractive as an interactive shell.

Bash is ultimately intended to be a conformant implementation of the IEEE POSIX Shell and Tools specification (IEEE Working Group 1003.2).

Please refer to "man bash" and the GNU info documentation for further details. The BASH Home Page has more information, including on-line documentation.
