the many shells, pros & cons
Authored by: cichlisuite on May 06, '01 03:16:53AM

Unix newbie here. Does anyone have a handy reference that outlines the differences between all these different shells? The pro's and cons?
I'm not look for any religious arguements, just facts.

I've been using bash on a friends remote *nix box, and I've gotten more handy with customizing it than I have with tcsh. I'm thinking on making it my default shell on OS X. Also, many of the *nix reference books I have picked up tend to mention bash more often than all the others.

But I'd stil like to make a well educated decision.
