Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide
This tutorial assumes no previous knowledge of scripting or programming, but progresses rapidly toward an intermediate/advanced level of instruction . . . all the while sneaking in little snippets of UNIX® wisdom and lore. It serves as a textbook, a manual for self-study, and a reference and source of knowledge on shell scripting techniques. The exercises and heavily-commented examples invite active reader participation, under the premise that the only way to really learn scripting is to write scripts.

> So in other words, Mendel was part of a large and active research community which sprang from commercial sources, kept in close touch with commercial breeders, and was well aware of the commercial importance of their work; even if peas were of little importance on their own and no one could seriously have expected Mendel to single-handedly solve the problem (though he kind of did), they were a model organism hopefully useful for elucidating the mysterious principles of heredity which applied to important things, like sheep. Considering that he apparently only became a monk to get an education for free, and his original abbot-sponsor was himself a researcher, his biography sounds remarkably like a grad student being hired to replace his advisor! (Abbot : PI :: monk : grad student :: monastery : department :: vow of poverty : stipend+debt ...)

As a matter of historical contingency (obscure language, Mendel being badly distracted by promotion to abbot & legal warfare & dying relatively young, destruction of papers, initial misinterpretation), it didn't have an (immediate) fruitful impact, but it very easily could've and eventually did as soon as someone redid his work and reread his paper. As examples of l'art pour l'art,
