23<para><command>ash</command> is a shell that is the most compliant with the
24Bourne Shell (not to be confused with Bourne Again SHell i.e., <application>Bash</application>
25installed in <acronym>LFS</acronym>) without any additional features.
26Bourne Shell is available on most commercial
27<acronym>UNIX</acronym> systems. Hence <command>ash</command> is useful for testing
28scripts to be <command>sh</command>-compliant. It also has a small memory and space requirements
29compared to the other <command>sh</command>-compliant shells.</para>
