The Dash shell, a POSIX-compliant derivative of the Almquist shell used as /bin/sh in Debian, Ubuntu and other Linux distributions
Dash is a shell with POSIX features and little more. It is derived from the Almquist shell ash, originally to serve as
/bin/sh on Debian, and also used in Ubuntu and other derivatives and other Linux distributions. Dash is smaller and faster than Bash bash, but has fewer features.
