Download Bash2Py

This tool makes a reasonable effort to convert Bash to Python

The latest builds are available below. It is recommended that you use the latest available version, and only if you encounter problems with this version, revert to earlier versions. While effort has been made to test this software, it may contain bugs.

Version 3.1+ is significantly better than earlier versions, and uses the Bash 4.3.30 source code.

The ZIP files contain C source code which may be built on any unix machine. The optional bash2py front end script presumes the availability of python.

  5. This program can be accessed indirectly using the bash2py script
