I was installing Anaconda Python on Linux. For Linux, Anaconda provide a bash script, but the file is huge, almost 300 MB. I decided to see why, and opened it in a text editor.
About 95% of the file is machine language gibberish, like this:
The file isn't corrupt, as I can install Python.
Most of this is in the license file, so Im wondering if it's unicode for another language, but that wouldn't take 95% of the file, would it?
Can it be compiled code / machine language? Is it allowed to put machine code in bash files?
