TPT(Tiny Python Tip): Python for Bash Scripters
by Noah Gift
If you know Bash, and I mean even as little as being able to throw a few lines together into a script, you can learn Python. I put some example Bash/Python scripts in svn up at Google Code. There are five scripts in total, two are the exact same program written in Bash and Python, and the last script is an example of a complex Unix command line tool that embeds Bash into Python.

runCommands() in bash doesn't deserve its name... it doesn't *run* anything, it just prints some results.
Elias/Thanks for the comments! One of the reasons I started the project was to get feedback to improve the Bash/Python comparisons. I do agree with the runCommands function, as it is a little weird to compare something Bash does by its very nature, which is run commands, to Python running shell commands
