bash

Bourne Again SHell. GNU's command interpreter for Unix. Bash is a Posix-compatible shell with full Bourne shell syntax, and some C shell commands built in. The Bourne Again Shell supports Emacs-style command-line editing, job control, functions, and on-line help. Written by Brian Fox of UCSB.

The latest version is 1.14.1. It includes a yacc parser, the interpreter and documentation.
