I have to correct myself and try to eliminate any possible misunderstandings! When I quickly wrote the name Bash, I meant all the variations of Posix slang and not the one shell, Bash, Dash, or whatever, and I referred (as in the survey) only to the programming languages! To stay correct, PowerShell is both a shell and has its own language. So in terms of programming languages, PowerShell and all these posix slangs are nothing else.

Yes, of course. Although a shell is an environment in which everything runs, commands are executed, and the language is interpreted, but basically it is just like any other programming language. There is always a kind of environment in every programming language. Whether it's a compiler or a real-time interpreter, that's irrelevant. All have their own base library of commands and their own little sub-OS, so to speak.

That's why I personally see no real difference. Also, PowerShell has its modular library and its base cmdlets set. Thus, it is also a programming language and has its applications especially with the backing in the background by .NET.

Peace! Smile | :) Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:
Something about which we often break our head:
"In the name of the Compiler, the Stack, and the Bug-Free Code. Amen."
