Hi, Yes, please. Of course, this assignment could equally have been done in, say Python (and was a few years ago), but that not the point of this unit, which is Shell and open source tool scripting. While basic natural language processing is the motivation for the assignment, the point is for you to experience a somewhat larger build involving the systems we are covering in this unit.
