Day 73: $ basename command

ODOC: About basename

The basename utility deletes any prefix ending in / and the suffix (if present in string) from string, and prints the
result on the standard output. It is normally used inside substitution marks (“) within shell procedures.

Example:

basename myfile.txt .txt

Takes the basename of myfile.txt and strips the .txt portion and then just displays myfile.
