Shell scripting

This may come handy while writing cross-platform scripts.

If you don’t want to commit to the idiosyncrasies of a specific shell running on a particular platform, try the Squirrel Shell.

Squirrel is a high level imperative/OO programming language, designed to be a light-weight scripting language that fits in the size, memory bandwidth, and real-time requirements of applications like video games.
