Install the fish shell

If you want a shell that does all sorts of built-in command line completion, includes modules for ftp, sockets, and other capabilities, and doesn't require building or installing anything, you should try the Z shell (/bin/zsh, already part of Mac OS).

I second that suggestion. Before zsh, I never "got" shell usage at all, but zsh had a super tutorial and it made much more sense than the endless weird backtics and similar oddities in other shells.

Madness takes its toll.
Please have exact change.
