Drupal Bootstrapped Build Scripts with Drush scr

Since AllPlayers kicked me out, I've had the chance to do the contractor thing for a little bit and it's been an interesting eye opener. AllPlayers was my first professional Drupal job and a fine example of a SaaS model at work! Best of all it sported what Drupal really could do running both a Drupal 6 install and Drupal 7 install that talked with one another. But that was only the start. Through all the use of Ruby's Rakefiles, Composure, and Jenkins, I found that we did a lot of shell scripting still there. Where I'm at now, Promet Solutions, things are done a little differently. Since the company not only builds websites but supports what other people have built, it's not always easiest to drag out all the big SaaS components that I'm use to. Sometimes, you just have to go a little lower tech.

Well there are other use cases for what I'm about to show you as well but this is a cool little pro tip to get you on your feet and get you some place to start debugging.

I found this to be a problem recently when I built the documentation for the Views Natural Sort module. I always kinda envied the WordPress sites because they had this as an option to click on, but I had to code this for me. To give credit where it's due, this script was inspired over at Stack Overflow.

Recently, due to an issue I got in my issue queue on Drupal.org, I realized that there may be a bit of confusion about how to use Views Natural Sort. The following is some information on how it works and a quick guide on how to use it.
