    The first version of it I wrote in a couple of hours.

    Project mention: Write Posix Shell | | 2023-03-11

    I'm a big fan of not posix bit instead modern bash and to all the complainers about dash and ash, I say "tough cookies".

    Sometimes I'll even use zsh

    Here's some example of a modern tool I have written for a subject I call "music discovery"

    You'll see many languages in there.

    If you don't like my practice then I guess don't use it. I've been using/developing these particular tools nearly every day for over 3 years and it works well for me.

    I'm not going to say bash is awesome but it's pretty great for programming.

    I use zsh as my interactive though
