> Hi, I want to ask about #!/bin/bash at the beginning of most of your demo scripts. What does it actually do and is it necessary to include that every time I write a script (+ in coding sections for exam)? Thanks
Hi, It just tells the Shell how to interpret the script; by default ordinary Shell is used, not Bash (I believe). Either way, it’s good to be explicit about it. Cheers MichaelW
