blib: Bash basic library

The blib library is a basic library contains a lot of useful functions and aliases for bash programing. The library is compiled in one file and it's easy to source from any script. All functions are well documented and using specific namespace convention to keep blib easy to use.

See the API Reference below for more information about utilities included in standard blib versions.


In blib functions are organized in modules. Because of bash does not support namespaces natively, we need to use a convention to simulate them. In blib all functions are named in the following form:


Where module is the module name where the functions belongs, and the function is the function name. Blib is documented with bashdoc, using bashdoc document strings.
