Shell Comparison

Post by MANDRAGOR » Wed, 21 Sep 1994 11:45:59

I recently got a new account and have the option of having any unix shell
installed.  Unfortunately I know little ofe differences.  I have read the AQ
but it didn't tell me much, and the file it said to ftp was for shell
programmers.  I am familiar with csh and a little bit of bash.  Could anyone
suggest anything from a user stand point as opposed to a shell programmers
view?  Please respond via e-mail if possible.
        Thanks in advance.

1. Is the current shell comparison faq still accurate?

I notice at
that the Shell Differences FAQ hasn't changed in 4 years.  Has today's
Unix shell changed in any way to reflect a need to update this document?

"I know of vanishingly few people ... who choose to use ksh." "I'm a minority!"

Even if explicitly stated to the contrary, nothing in this posting
should be construed as representing my employer's opinions.
