That's the part you don't seem to be getting. A script is a wrapper
around all of your programs and becomes a superset of all of them. At
least the ones that are capable of using and generating text. It is
not just limited to what any single program can do - or what is on any
single machine for that matter assuming you have a tool like ssh
available. At least that's the unix-inspired way of thinking.
Maybe you are used to some more restricted form of scripting.
