The Unix shells are quite sophisticated programming languages in their own right: they are easy to design and quick to build, but they are not user friendly just like UNIX commands (see UNIX haters books). Both UNIX and Bash provide features for writing user friendly scripts using various tools to build powerful, interactive, user friendly UNIX / Linux bash shell scripts. What tools do you use that spice up your scripts on the Linux, UNIX and/or Windows platform?"
