22. Writing Portable Bourne Shell

This chapter is a whistle stop tour of the accumulated wisdom of the free software community, with respect to best practices for portable shell scripting, as encoded in the sources for Autoconf and Libtool, as interpreted and filtered by me. It is by no means comprehensive -- entire books have been devoted to the subject -- though it is, I hope, authoritative.
