Shell script syntax is exactly the same as command line syntax.
So, if in doubt about what something in a shell script does... type it!

I highly recommend taking a few hours to really explore shell scripting.
In the long run your life with unix will be greatly improved by it,
even if you don't write (or read) them very often, because
you'll learn things about the shell that are good to know at
the command line. And there are shell scripts all over the place! 
For example, everything in /etc/init.d is a shell script.

Here's a nice little tutorial:
