new_script

new_script is a program that creates shell script templates. It was developed to facilitate rapid creation of well-formed shell scripts containing the features expected in a production quality script, including traps for signal handling, command line option and argument processing, help messages invoked with the "-h" or "--help" options, and a framework for internal documentation.
