if you search for "bang", you will find the following two terms used:
2. hash bang
Those are misspelled, and it would be better to use one term throughout for the construct.
For the first, I haven't seen "she-bang" (i.e., with a dash); I think that would normally be "shebang" (i.e., without a dash). Wikipedia
does list "sha-bang" if perhaps that was the intended spelling.
For the second, that should probably be "hash-bang" (i.e., with a dash), again according to Wikipedia (which lists sources).
For the whole guide (which is just fixes.xml as far as I can tell), I think it would be better to choose one term to use throughout. My vote would be "shebang", but whatever is chosen, it should be consistently used.
