Gnu Bash

GNU Bash — more commonly known as Bash — is a command processor that typically runs in a text window, where the user types commands that cause actions. It assists users in maintaining, modifying and controlling computer systems through its command-line interface (CLI). As a shell for GNU operating systems and an alternative to the Bourne shell, Bash provides scripting abilities enabling complex operations such as programming entire applications or tools using nothing but simple commands. This makes it suitable not only for comfortable interactive use by system administrators but also for automating repetitive tasks at scale within both enterprise servers and personal computers running various Linux distributions.
