What is BASH in Linux
BASH = Bourne Again Shell
- Bash is a shell written as a free replacement to the standard Bourne Shell (/bin/sh) originally written by Steve Bourne for UNIX systems.
- It has all of the features of the original Bourne Shell, plus additions that make it easier to program with and use from the command line.
- Since it is Free Software, it has been adopted as the default shell on most Linux systems.
