# 从男人开始学习bash(1)

man是大家经常用的命令，但是学习bash的时候有很多书。今天发现man bash是一个不错的资源，摘抄一些供大家学习。

• 脚本加载顺序

bash作为一个交互式的登陆程序启动时，首先会读取/etc/profile里的内容，然后依次找~/.bash_profile, ~/.bash_login, and ~/.profile。退出时，也是执行/.bash_logout ，/etc/bash.bash_logout。当以不登陆的shell启动时，就执行~/.bashrc

• 基本定义和保留字

The following definitions are used throughout the rest of this document.
blank  A space or tab.
word   A sequence of characters considered as a single unit by the shell.  Also known as a token.
name   A word consisting only of alphanumeric characters and underscores, and beginning with an alphabetic character or an underscore.  Also referred to as an identifier.
metacharacter    A character that, when unquoted, separates words.  One of the following:
|  & ; ( ) < > space tab
control operator A token that performs a control function.  It is one of the following symbols:
|| & && ; ;; ( ) | |& <newline>


Reserved words are words that have a special meaning to the shell.  The following words are recognized as reserved when unquoted and either the first word of a simple  command (see SHELL GRAMMAR below) or the third word of a case or for command:
! case  coproc  do done elif else esac fi for function if in select then until while { } time [[ ]]

• Shell语法

• 简单命令

A simple command is a sequence of optional variable assignments followed by blank-separated words and redirections, and terminated by a control operator. The first word specifies the command to be executed, and is passed as argument zero. The remaining words are passed as arguments to the invoked command.

The return value of a simple command is its exit status, or 128+n if the command is terminated by signal n.

• PipeLine

|&表示 command的error也会追加到command2中，是2>&1 |的缩写
The return status of a pipeline is the exit status of the last command, unless the pipefail option is enabled. If pipefail is enabled, the pipeline’s return status is the value of the last (rightmost) command to exit with a non-zero status, or zero if all commands exit successfully. If the reserved word ! precedes a pipeline, the exit status of that pipeline is the logical negation of the exit status as described above. The shell waits for all commands in the pipeline to terminate before returning a value.

If the time reserved word precedes a pipeline, the elapsed as well as user and system time consumed by its execution are reported when the pipeline terminates. The -p option changes the output format to that specified by POSIX. When the shell is in posix mode, it does not recognize time as a reserved word if the next token begins with a ’-‘.
time的话会统计一个执行时间。 -p表示使用POSIX时间输出

• Lists

A list is a sequence of one or more pipelines separated by one of the operators ;, &, &&, or ||, and optionally terminated by one of ;, &, or . Of these list operators, && and || have equal precedence, followed by ; and &, which have equal precedence.

A sequence of one or more newlines may appear in a list instead of a semicolon to delimit commands.If a command is terminated by the control operator &, the shell executes the command in the background in a subshell. The shell does not wait for the command to finish,and the return status is 0. Commands separated by a ; are executed sequentially; the shell waits for each command to terminate in turn. The return status is the exit status of the last command executed.
; , & && ||分开的一个或多个的pipeline，可选; , & <newline>结尾
&结尾表示在后台运行，被；分开的会分别执行，返回最后一个执行过的命令的状态作为返回值

command1 && command2
command2 is executed if, and only if, command1 returns an exit status of zero.
command1 || command2
command2 is executed if and only if command1 returns a non-zero exit status. The return status of AND and OR lists is the exit status of the last command executed in the list.

And和Or逻辑区别，注意，Bash里面，0为真，其他为假。所以And时候，command1==0 才会执行command2。真假和C语言是颠倒的

• 复合命令（compound command）

A compound command is one of the following. In most cases a list in a command’s description may be separated from the rest of the command by one or more newlines, and may be followed by a newline in place of a semicolon.

• (List)

list is executed in a subshell environment. Variable assignments and builtin commands that affect the shell’s environment do not remain in effect after the command completes. The return status is the exit status of list.

• { list; }

• ((expression))

The expression is evaluated according to the rules described below under ARITHMETIC EVALUATION. If the value of the expression is non-zero, the return status is 0;otherwise the return status is 1. This is exactly equivalent to let “expression”.

• [[ expression ]]

Return a status of 0 or 1 depending on the evaluation of the conditional expression expression. Expressions are composed of the primaries described below under CONDITIONAL EXPRESSIONS. Word splitting and pathname expansion are not performed on the words between the [[ and ]]; tilde expansion, parameter and variable expansion,arithmetic expansion, command substitution, process substitution, and quote removal are performed. Conditional operators such as -f must be unquoted to be recognized as primaries. 表达式计算。 < >的比较会依赖于当前地区的字母序列进行比较
When the == and != operators are used, the string to the right of the operator is considered a pattern and matched according to the rules described below under Pattern Matching, as if the extglob shell option were enabled. The = operator is equivalent to ==. If the shell option nocasematch is enabled, the match is performed without regard to the case of alphabetic characters. The return value is 0 if the string matches (==) or does not match (!=) the pattern, and 1 otherwise. Any part of the pattern may be quoted to force the quoted portion to be matched as a string?.
==!=使用是，右边的操作会被认为是一个pattern。===是相同的。
An additional binary operator, =~, is available, with the same precedence as == and !=. When it is used, the string to the right of the operator is considered an extended regular expression and matched accordingly (as in regex(3)). The return value is 0 if the string matches the pattern, and 1 otherwise. If the regular expression is syntactically incorrect, the conditional expression’s return value is 2. If the shell option nocasematch is enabled, the match is performed without regard to the case of alphabetic characters.

=~ 右边被认为是一个正则表达式，返回2的话表示正则有问题。

Any part of the pattern may be quoted to force the quoted portion to be matched as a string?.Bracket expressions in regular expressions must be treated carefully, since normal quoting characters lose their meanings between brackets. If the pattern is stored in a shell variable,quoting the variable expansion forces the entire pattern to be matched as a string. Substrings matched by parenthesized subexpressions within the regular expression are saved in the array variable BASH_REMATCH. The element of BASH_REMATCH with index 0 is the portion of the string matching the entire regular expression. The element of BASH_REMATCH with index n is the portion of the string matching the nth parenthesized subexpression.

Expressions may be combined using the following operators, listed in decreasing order of precedence: ( expression ) Returns the value of expression. This may be used to override the normal precedence of operators.
! expression True if expression is false.
expression1 && expression2 True if both expression1 and expression2 are true.
expression1 || expression2 True if either expression1 or expression2 is true.

&& ||都会造成逻辑短路。express2有可能会不执行。

• for name [ [ in [ word ... ] ] ; ] do list ; done

for的一种表达形式

• for (( expr1 ; expr2 ; expr3 )) ; do list ; done

• select name [ in word ] ; do list ; done

• case word in [ [(] pattern [ | pattern ] ... ) list ;; ] ... esac

Switch case语法

A case command first expands word, and tries to match it against each pattern in turn, using the same matching rules as for pathname expansion (see Pathname Expansion below).The word is expanded using tilde expansion, parameter and variable expansion, arithmetic substitution, command substitution, process substitution and quote removal. Each pattern examined is expanded using tilde expansion, parameter and variable expansion, arithmetic substitution, command substitution, and process substitution. If the shell option nocasematch is enabled, the match is performed without regard to the case of alphabetic characters.

When a match is found, the corresponding list is executed. If the ;; operator is used, no subsequent matches are attempted after the first pattern match. Using ;& in place of ;; causes execution to continue with the list associated with the next set of patterns. Using ;;& in place of ;; causes the shell to test the next pattern list in the statement, if any, and execute any associated list on a successful match. The exit status is zero if no pattern matches. Otherwise, it is the exit status of the last command executed in list.
