About the Book
A collection of pure bash alternatives to external processes and programs. The bash scripting language is more powerful than people realise and most tasks can be accomplished without the need for or dependence on external programs.
Calling an external process in bash is expensive and excessive use will cause a noticeable slowdown. Scripts and programs written using built-in methods where applicable will be faster, require less dependencies and afford a better understanding of the language itself.
The content of this book provides a reference for solving problems encountered when writing programs and scripts in bash. All examples are in function format showcasing how to incorporate these solutions into code.
