gnucash: Launch GnuCash and load the specified file.
$ gnucash ${filename-gnucash}
try on your machine

This command is a bash command that uses the variable "filename" to open a file in the GNUcash application.

Let's break down the command:

  • "gnucash": This is the command to execute the GNUcash application.
  • "${filename-gnucash}": This is a substitution expression that uses the value stored in the variable "filename" to specify the file to open. If the variable "filename" is set and has a value, it will be used as the file name. Otherwise, the default value "gnucash" will be used as the file name.

In summary, this command opens the GNUcash application and loads a specific file for further processing or analysis.
