What is BASH?

BASH is short for Bourne Again Shell. It is a shell that was designed for Linux. It is designed after the Bourne shell, a shell for UNIX. BASH has also often been called a superset of the Bourne shell. Hence, BASH is actually compatible with the Bourne shell, that is, the commands that work in sh, also work in bash.
