Is the bash guide a text file, an HTML page or what? The files ending .sh are shell scripts that you can run in sh or bash and the files ending .bash are probably executable shell scripts just for bash.

I suspect its an HTML file because the main file is named :

abs-book.sgml = stands for I guess
AdvancedBashScriptingGuide .
