GNU Bash vs HAML: What are the differences?

GNU Bash: Functional improvements over sh for both programming and interactive use. The Bourne Again SHell is an sh-compatible shell that incorporates useful features from the Korn shell (ksh) and C shell (csh). It is intended to conform to the IEEE POSIX P1003.2/ISO 9945.2 Shell and Tools standard; HAML: HTML Abstraction Markup Language - A Markup Haiku. Haml is a markup language that’s used to cleanly and simply describe the HTML of any web document, without the use of inline code. Haml functions as a replacement for inline page templating systems such as PHP, ERB, and ASP. However, Haml avoids the need for explicitly coding HTML into the template, because it is actually an abstract description of the HTML, with some code to generate dynamic content.

GNU Bash and HAML are primarily classified as "Shells" and "Languages" tools respectively.

HAML is an open source tool with 3.44K GitHub stars and 544 GitHub forks. Here's a link to HAML's open source repository on GitHub.

According to the StackShare community, HAML has a broader approval, being mentioned in 113 company stacks & 40 developers stacks; compared to GNU Bash, which is listed in 40 company stacks and 73 developer stacks.

If you have a file (demo.txt) that has 3 columns:

Column-1    Column-2    Column-3
Row-1a      Row-2a      Row-3a         
Row-1b      Row-2b      Row-3b
Row-1c      Row-2c      Row-3c
Row-1d      Row-2d      Row-3d
Row-1e      Row-2e      Row-3e

and you want to only view the first column of the file in your CLI, run the following:

awk {'print $1'} demo.txt

Column-1
Row-1a
Row-1b
Row-1c
Row-1d
Row-1e

If you want to print the second column of demo.txt, just replace $1 with $2
