    The thing to keep in mind about bash is that it was designed to be typed into a terminal whereas most programming languages were designed to be laid in a more or less readable format in a file. So bash has a lot of shortcuts and syntax oddities that let you accomplish complex actions in a small amount of characters, but it will likely take someone else a while to read those commands and figure out what is going on.
