    I don’t have much feedback, but since no one else left a comment I just wanted say this was a nice episode.

    I have tried really hard not to learn bash syntax (because I find it so convoluted) but I have still picked up a lot of it over the years. Rob might consider writing the scripts in another language. If I need any control flow or more complex data structures, I often switch to python and do something like this:

    import shlex
    import subprocess

    def run(command):
    subprocess.check_call(shlex.split(cmd))

    run(‘make’)
    run(‘make install’)

    …etc.
