Bash.Diff is a patch against Bash that incorporates many features from Awk, Python, Zsh, Ksh, and others. In the main core, it adds the following: new brace expansion {a..b}; new parameter expansion ${var Pipe.png...}; new command substitution $(=...); string concatenation (+=); extended for, while, and until loops; extended case statement; and new try-block with integer exception. As builtin commands, it adds the following: sscanf(3) wrapper; extensive array and regex(3) operations; GDBM, SQLite, PostgreSQL, and MySQL database interfaces; and an HTML template engine (BASP).
