 Bash Features
 This text is a brief description of the features that are present in the
 Bash shell (version 4.2, 28 December 2010).
    This is Edition 4.2, last updated 28 December 2010, of 'The GNU Bash
 Reference Manual', for 'Bash', Version 4.2.
    Bash contains features that appear in other popular shells, and some
 features that only appear in Bash.  Some of the shells that Bash has
 borrowed concepts from are the Bourne Shell ('sh'), the Korn Shell
 ('ksh'), and the C-shell ('csh' and its successor, 'tcsh').  The
 following menu breaks the features up into categories based upon which
 one of these other shells inspired the feature.
    This manual is meant as a brief introduction to features found in
 Bash.  The Bash manual page should be used as the definitive reference
 on shell behavior.
