The ash shell is a clone of Berkeley's Bourne shell.  Ash
supports all of the standard sh shell commands, but is considerably
smaller than bash.  The ash shell lacks some features (for example,
command-line histories), but needs a lot less memory.
You should install ash if you need a lightweight shell with many of the
same capabilities as the bash shell.
