Install the fish shell
Authored by: Tim_Cox on Aug 21, '08 03:57:28AM

Sounded interesting so I used Porticus (gui for MacPorts) to install fish as suggested.
Astonishingly it DID require over 400 MB of downloads to satisfy its dependencies. It seems like perhaps someone wasn't too careful about minimizing the dependencies, or as noted elsewhere in the comments, maybe it's the TeX-based documentation which it pulling in ghostscript, tex itself (!), etc. etc.
I also got stuck on graphviz, but then trying again (a few times) suddenly it became downloadable, and in the end after more than an hour, I had fish installed. Lots of fun! But thanks for pointing out a shell I was unaware of!
