31 <para><command>ash</command> is a shell that is the most compliant with
32 the Bourne Shell (not to be confused with Bourne Again SHell i.e.,
33 <application>Bash</application> installed in LFS) without any additional
34 features. Bourne Shell is available on most commercial UNIX systems.
35 Hence <command>ash</command> is useful for testing scripts to be
36 <command>sh</command>-compliant. It also has small memory and space
37 requirements compared to the other <command>sh</command>-compliant
38 shells.</para>
