Dash (Debian Almquist Shell )

Release date: 
Monday, 3 September, 2018



Dash is a POSIX-compliant implementation of the Bourne shell (sh) that aims to be as small as possible. It does this without sacrificing speed where possible. In fact, it is significantly faster than bash (the GNU Bourne-Again SHell) for most tasks.

This software is distributed as RPM package.

Installation with rpm

This program is installable using the rpm package manager. See below for the install string. Required prerequisites are automatically processed by the package manager and, if needed, downloaded and installed.
