In a Unix shell, you can run a series of commands, connecting the
output of one command with the input to the next command using
pipes. The information passed from one command to the next is normally
organized into lines of text. Tools such as awk and sed are designed
to extract and transform information from these lines. It would be
much simpler if the data passed between commands was organized into
objects. Osh is based on this idea. 

Because osh is based on Python, it is Python objects that are passed
between commands, and Python functions are used to manipulate objects.
