Bash Scripting.

This is an open series in which Hacker Public Radio Listeners can share their Bash scripting knowledge and experience with the community. General programming topics and Bash commands are explored along with some tutorials for the complete novice.

Bash Tips - 16 (Further auxiliary Bash tips)

Arrays in Bash

This is the first of a small group of shows on the subject of arrays in Bash. It is also the sixteenth show in the Bash Tips sub-series.

We have encountered Bash arrays at various points throughout this sub-series, and have even seen a number of examples, but the subject has never been examined in detail. This group of shows intends to make good this deficiency.

Long notes

I have provided detailed notes as usual for this episode, and these can be viewed here.

Yes, I just saw that on Mastodon. Thanks for the heads-up.

Oh boy, lots of fun for me, infinite vistas of tedium for my audience ;-)
