ShellCheck all the bash/sh script under a specific directory excluding version control

find . -type f ! -path "./.git/*" -exec sh -c "head -n 1 {} | egrep -a 'bin/bash|bin/sh' >/dev/null" \; -print -exec shellcheck {} \;
This is a commodity one-liner that uses ShellCheck to assure some quality on bash and sh scripts under a specific directory. It ignores the files in .git directory. Just substitute "./.git/*" with "./.svn/*" for older and booring centralized version control. Just substitute ShellCheck with "rm" if your scripts are crap and you want to get rid of them :)

Nice, although with a lot of scripts the output could get unwieldy, probably needs to be written to a file. Side note: whats going on with all the spam on here, the comments sections are being destroyed.
