Chapter 12. bash for Your System

 < Day Day Up > 

The first 10 chapters of this book looked at nearly all aspects of bash, from navigating the filesystem and editing the command-line to writing shell scripts and functions using lesser-known features of the shell. This is all very well and good, but what if you have an old version of bash and want the new features shown in this book (or worse yet, you don't have bash at all)?

In this chapter we'll show you how to get the latest version of bash and install it on your system, and we'll discuss potential problems you might encounter along the way. We'll also look briefly at the examples that come with bash and how you can report bugs to the bash maintainer.
