Overview

This is a Zero Install feed. To add this program to your Applications menu, choose Zero Install -> Add New Program from the Applications menu. e.g. on Ubuntu:

Adding with GNOME

If you don't see this menu item, install the zeroinstall-injector package from your distribution's repository, or from 0install.net.

Drag the feed's URL to the dialog box that appears. Other environments may use other systems. For example, if you are a ROX desktop user, drag the link to AddApp instead.

Alternatively, to run it from the command-line:

$ 0launch http://repo.roscidus.com/utils/bash

The 0alias command can be used to create a short-cut to run it again later.

If you don't have the 0launch command, download it from the 0install.net web-site, which also contains documentation about how the Zero Install system works.

Description

Bash is the shell, or command language interpreter, for the GNU operating system. The name is an acronym for the ‘Bourne-Again SHell’, a pun on Stephen Bourne, the author of the direct ancestor of the current Unix shell sh, which appeared in the Seventh Edition Bell Labs Research version of Unix. Bash is largely compatible with sh and incorporates useful features from the Korn shell ksh and the C shell csh. It is intended to be a conformant implementation of the IEEE POSIX Shell and Tools portion of the IEEE POSIX specification (IEEE Standard 1003.1). It offers functional improvements over sh for both interactive and programming use. Since bash is included on most Unix systems, this feed is mainly useful for Windows systems, where it provides a binary of win-bash (http://win- bash.sourceforge.net/).
