A lightweight (92K) Bourne compatible shell.  Great for machines with
low memory, but does not provide all the extras of shells like bash,
tcsh, and zsh.  Runs most shell scripts compatible with the Bourne
shell.  Note that under Linux, most scripts seem to use at least some
bash-specific syntax.  The Slackware setup scripts are a notable
exception, since ash is the shell used on the install disks.  NetBSD
uses ash as its /bin/sh.
