you can't , bash/sh is a scripting language , it's interpreted not compiled

Some scripting languages have some kind of "compilation" support (to an intermediate language) like Python's pyc files; but it is very unlikely that such thing exists for bash/sh.

(But actually I'm unsure if he is really looking for compiling shell scripts. He probably wants to know how to run shell scripts).

for python it's just bytecode there is no optimisation, just binary store of the ascii code, it's just for faster load
