Subject Re: ANNOUNCE: ParBASH 0.1 release - Hadoop through BASH

That's right Amr. ParBASH is a modified bash interpreter which 
translates certain bash constructs into hadoop steaming jobs. With very 
small changes a parbash script can be made to run on hadoop or locally, 
which I find very handy while developing map-reduce jobs.

Frequently, I need to do data cleaning, extraction and transformation on 
my input files before running my map-reduce jobs. I find it convenient 
to use shell tools (grep, awk, perl, etc) for this kind of thing. 
ParBASH tries to imitate unix shell-way of processing files, so I think 
it is a good fit for any scripting-based map-reduce job.
