Thank you, I was not aware of ":cmdline" argument and of ":shebang" as a 
means to avoid stray prompts (I have seen mentions of similar problem 
for other languages in this list).

I have noticed some glitches.

- https://www.mirbsd.org/pics/logo-grey.png works only with http: 
protocol for me.
- I am unsure concerning example after "…or as a standlone script.", 
maybe it should be wrapped into #+begin_example.
- In some cases "sh" is used despite bashisms in the code like "declare" 
or "echo -ne". Actually "printf" may be more convenient instead of "echo -n"
- "export" in session example is unnecessary. It is matter of taste 
though. Bash and dash is not the case, but some shells require that 
assignment and export should be separate commands.
- In your examples variable values are simple. Often it is safer to add 
double quotes around variable or command expansion. I would consider 
adding quotes just to encourage people to do the same by default with 
hope that less scripts will give strange results in response to a file 
name containing a space. Actually my first impression was that 
backslashes before quotes in some cases were added by mistake. Another 
unescaped pair of quotes may make your intention more clear. However it 
is related to code style where everybody has opinion, so I do not insist.
