Adventures: Coding Standards, Parts 1 and 2

Good news everyone! I have just posted 2 new adventures! In this two-part series we look at bash script coding standards.

In Part 1, we review what a coding standard does and how they work. We next create our own standard called the LinuxCommand Bash Scripting Style Guide.

In Part 2, we look at the new_script program, a bash shell script template generator that makes using our new coding standard fun and easy. Enjoy!

Adventure: source

We looked at the source builtin a little in TLCL when we were examining how the shell's environment is established with the .profile and .bashrc files. In this adventure, we will delve further into how to use this feature to support configuration files and shareable function libraries for our bash scripts.
