|Gentoo Libbash Development|
|Description||libbash development is devoted to maintaining and updating libbash core functionality and utilities.|
|Parent Project||Gentoo Linux|
Libbash will enable programs to use Abstract Syntax Trees(AST) to parse and interpret shell scripts directly instead of using regular expressions. Most of bash 3.2 syntax will be supported. This will be a great benefit to programs both outside and inside Gentoo, including Portage/Paludis and repoman. Bugs are tracked and fixed from the Gentoo bug tracker. We also have the #gentoo-libbash IRC channel on the freenode network.
The project aims to support common bash 3.2 syntax. Our current goal is to support ebuild metadata generation.
Resources offered by the libbash project are:
