A Shell script is a script written for the Shell. Shell scripts use ShellCommands and a specific syntax. Operations performed by shell scripts include file manipulation, program execution, and printing text.

A script is a text file, which may or may not have the file extension .sh. The first line of the file (shebang) indicates which interpreter/shell should execute the rest of the script:

  • #!/bin/sh

The MIME type of shell scripts is application/x-shellscript

.bat or .cmd are basic equivalents on Windows.
