What exactly does the Unix bash command do when run without options

0 votes

When you type bash into the terminal and press enter, you go into what looks like an interactive bash interpreter... As far as I know, Terminal pretty much is, anyway.

The only visible difference is that the command prompt line says

bash-3.2$

instead of

Marcos-MacBook-Pro-3:Desktop marcoprins$

So what is happening when you run bash without options?
