Test construct, rather than [ ... ] can prevent many logic errors in scripts. For example, The &&, ||, <, and > operators work within a [[ ]] test, despite giving an error within a [ ] construct. Following an if, neither the test command nor the test brackets ( [ ] or [[ ]] ) are strictly necessary. " fi # "2>/dev/null" hides error message. The "if COMMAND" construct returns the exit status of COMMAND. Similarly, a condition within test brackets may stand alone without an if, when used in combination with a list construct.

" fi # This works fine. # The [ ] test operator alone detects whether the string is null. # However it is good practice to quote it ("$string1"). 3.

The bitwise operators seldom make an appearance in shell scripts. Their chief use seems to be manipulating and testing values read from ports or sockets. "Bit flipping" is more relevant to compiled languages, such as C and C++, which run fast enough to permit its use on the fly. bitwise operators << Chapter 8.
