Actually, funny you say that!

The original BBS was written in bash originally! however I had to use cd alot and that got really annoying having to figure where to CD everything too! lol

I guess I'l give bash another shot.

    You can do pretty large systems in Bash, but Perl is much more powerful, saner, safer, and lighter than any shell language once you've learnt how to use it. I will continue to recommend you stick to Bash or maybe Zsh (somewhat more on the sane side than Bash) until you learn Perl enough to not shell out for every small task.
