Any thoughts as to where Bash might fit into a "teaching curriculum" ... ?
Yes. When students have a grasp on what other programming languages can do, are sat back wondering about operating systems, disk maintenance, scripting regular jobs, perhaps daily/monthly, when they are getting bored typing the same thing in at the command prompt time after time.
I.e. when they realise they could be more lazy.
or if you're feeling rich and want/need a ref book.
From Bash to Z shell.
Both work well. Also can be used to provoke an interest in the 1001 mini-tools that are available in Linux.
Bash is the way they make for joined up thinking.
