As you can see, it is 11 years old, but still good advice. For interactive use, tcsh is not too bad, but for writing scripts of any length, sh or bash are considered better tools. For code that will run anywhere, stick to the sh subset. <flamebait>Bash has all the features one is likely to need for interactive use as well, and one could make a good case for it being the 'standard' shell now.</flamebait> -- Mike Jeays http://www.jeays.ca _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
