re: Bash Brackets Quick Reference VIEW POST


Love this post. Bash has remained something I've been content to stumble around with instead of learning, but this got me intrigued.


Heh... There's so much I can do with BASH that, when under a time-crunch, it's hard for me to justify figuring out "how do I accomplish 'X' in <INSERT_LANGUAGE_OR_DSL>" ...when I can just bang it out in BASH in like two seconds


Yeah, I logically know all of this but have still maintained vast ignorance.


Basically until I wrote this, I just guessed and then tried another set of brackets when one didn’t work. I do that with a lot of stuff in Bash, so I’m going back to fill in all the gaps.
