Love this post. Bash has remained something I've been content to stumble around with instead of learning, but this got me intrigued.
Heh... There's so much I can do with BASH that, when under a time-crunch, it's hard for me to justify figuring out "how do I accomplish 'X' in <INSERT_LANGUAGE_OR_DSL>" ...when I can just bang it out in BASH in like two seconds
Yeah, I logically know all of this but have still maintained vast ignorance.
Basically until I wrote this, I just guessed and then tried another set of brackets when one didn’t work. I do that with a lot of stuff in Bash, so I’m going back to fill in all the gaps.
