The bash shell is a complete programming language, not merely a glue to combine external Linux commands.
By taking full advantage of shell internals, shell programs can perform as snappily as utilities written in C or other compiled languages. And you will see how, without assuming Unix lore, you can write professional bash 4.

Use shell parameter expansion to replace many external commands, making scripts very fast. Learn to avoid many common mistakes that cause scripts to fail.
Learn to use features new to bash 4. Build shell scripts that get information from the Web. Who this book is for Beginning Linux and Unix system administrators who want to be in full command of their systems. Chris F. Johnson was introduced to Unix in and learned shell scripting because there was no C compiler on the system. It may not be the default shell, but it is usually available for interpreting your scripts.
I hope this book will help you become a more productive programmer and that your programs will be written using the Bash shell.
Although most users think of the shell as an interactive command interpreter, it is really a programming language in which each statement runs a command. Because it must satisfy both the interactive and programming aspects of command execution, it is a strange language, shaped as much by history as by design. The shell is a programming language. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

The shell is not just glue that sticks bits together. The shell is a lot more than a tool that runs other tools. The shell is a complete programming language! When a Linux user asked me about membership databases, I asked him what he really needed. He wanted to store names and addresses for a couple of hundred members and print mailing labels for each of them. I recommended using a text editor to store the information in a text file, and I provided a shell script to create the labels in PostScript.

When the SWEN worm was dumping hundreds of megabytes of junk into my mailbox every few minutes, I wrote a shell script to filter them out on the mail server and download the remaining mail to my home computer. That script has been doing its job for several years. I used to tell people that I did most of my programming in the shell but switched to C for anything that needed the extra speed. It has been several years since I have needed to use C, so I no longer mention it. I do everything in the shell. A shell script is as much a program as anything written in C, Python, or any other language.
I use the terms script and program interchangeably when referring to tasks written in the shell.

Some Linux users do all of their work in a GUI environment and never see a command line. Most, however, use the shell at least occasionally and know something about Unix commands. It's not a big step from there to saving oft-repeated commands in a script file.
When they need to extend the capabilities of their system, the shell is the natural way to go. The shell also has important advantages over other programming languages:. While most shell programs do call external utilities, a lot of programming can be done entirely in the shell.
Many scripts call just one or two utilities for information that is used later in the script. Some scripts are little more than wrappers for other commands such as awk, grep, or sed.
This book is about programming in the shell itself. There's a sprinkling of the second type, where the script gets information such as the current date and time and then processes it. The third type gets barely more than a cursory nod. The Bourne shell was the first Unix shell in general use. It was much more limited than today's shells, so it was primarily a tool to run other tools. It had variables, loops, and conditional execution, but the real work was done almost entirely by external utilities. The C shell, csh, added command history, arithmetic, and other features that made it popular as a command-line interpreter, but it was not suitable for more than trivial scripts.
It was compatible with the Bourne shell, bringing important functionality into the shell itself and making script execution much faster. Until the year , when it was opened up, ksh was proprietary, closed-source software. The GNU Project, needing a free, open-source shell, introduced bash.
