I love being super fast in the shell so I decided to do a new article series called Bash One-Liners Explained. It’s going to be similar to my other article series – Awk One-Liners Explained, Sed One-Liners Explained, and Perl One-Liners Explained. After I’m done with this bash series, I’ll release an e-book by the same title, just as I did with awk, sed, and perl series. The e-book will be available as a pdf and in mobile formats (mobi and epub). I’ll also be releasing bash1line.txt, similar to perl1line.txt that I made for the perl series.
In this series I’ll use the best bash practices, various bash idioms and tricks. I want to illustrate how to get various tasks done with just bash built-in commands and bash programming language constructs.
