Shell is a DSL to manipulate files and processes,
and permeates any GNU/Linux system.
It's well worth learning.
Bash, and dash are variants of the language.
bash has good interactive features as well
as some extensions to the language.
dash is more aligned with POSIX and is
optimized towards speed rather than interactivity.
Python/Perl/Ruby are general purpose scripting
languages that have good system interface libraries.
