comment How can I effectively purge a manually installed package?
I have one more idea: You could check install.sh for a path where the install goes (usually configurable!), change that to /tmp/test and run bash install.sh. Now you can check the /tmp/test/ folder and files layout and run a script removing that files from / too.

comment Having a problem with a shell script counting characters
copy from link: You generally run a command with LC_ALL=C to avoid the user's settings to interfere with your script. For instance, if you want [a-z] to match the 26 ASCII characters from a to z, you have to set LC_ALL=C

to find the meaning of a command line switch, try using the man command (in this case man echo: -n do not output trailing newline). Frequent invocation of man will advance your linux skills rapidly. For more info on LC_ALL, see this question/answer
