Hi Rabea, Use of Bash functions is fine; It's just that we've not covered them yet. The are not "advanced" (I really should have chosen a different word), by which I intended more advanced Unix tools, such as awk (and bc), where you can pretty much get around the teaching purpose of the assignment, namely to get everyone used to Bash language structures.
