Starting to use WordShell

Please report any issues you have not covered in this manual via our support systems.

Checking requirements

WordShell is a shell script, written for the Bash shell. That means that you need to have the Bash shell installed on your system.

Bash is installed by default on many UNIX-like systems (Mac OS X, Linux, BSD, etc.). If you are not sure, then you can type this command:

bash --version

And you should receive an output something like this:

GNU bash, version 4.2.20(1)-release (x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu)
Copyright (C) 2011 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
License GPLv3+: GNU GPL version 3 or later <>

This is free software; you are free to change and redistribute it.
There is NO WARRANTY, to the extent permitted by law.

Once you have bash installed, you are ready to move to the next step – installing and testing.
