I'm working on polishing my meagre shell scripting skills and would
appreciate some feedback on the line above, quoted from the kernel Makefile.
1. How would you use this in a straight bash script so it returned a value
containing the boxes architecture?
2. As far as comparisons go, if I wanted to determine if a string contained
".xyz" or ".abc" would that be a variant of the fragment above?
Thanks for any feedback...
