Clearly, this instruction is not to be taken literally;  the script
contains commands that do not exist in Linux.

Presumably pulseaudio knows how to do those commands.


The purpose of the first line of a shell script is to indentify the interpreter used to run it. I've seen sh, csh, pdksh, perl, python, wish and make used this way, and there's bound to be lots more.

The interpreter implements the language.
