GNU Bash is an sh-compatible command language interpreter that executes commands read from the standard input or from a file.

Bash also incorporates useful features from the Korn and C shells (ksh and csh). Bash is intended to be a conforming implementation of the IEEE POSIX Shell and Tools specification (IEEE Working Group 1003.2).
