how do you describe '#!' in written english?

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by SHIGETOMI, Takuhiko, Aug 28, 2005.

  1. quick question.
    sorry, this is not a question of Ruby but a more general inquiry.

    I'd like to ask you how do you describe '#!' which we always put at the
    head of the scripting source code file.
    I know that its pronunciation is 'she bang' but am not sure that this
    'she bang' would be correct description or not.
