So I have been saving my files with extension but I realized that this is not the case in the assignment description. Just wondering if its bad practice to save files with the extension?

Hi, As far as Bash and Unix are concerned, the suffix is irrelevant. Ditto any Shell or other scripts you use within your overall program. However, the top level names have to be precisely the ones specified in the spec; otherwise my testing script will not be able to call your code (which is clearly not a good thing). Cheers MichaelW
