Free scripts to improve UNIX/Finder interaction
Authored by: gatorparrots on Sep 22, '03 12:35:55PM
In c-shells (csh, tcsh), you want to use backticks (`) instead of the $() form. In this case, you would use:
cd "`/usr/bin/posd`"

$(somecommand) is newer Bourne-style syntax supported by bash, ksh, zsh, etc. The advantage of using that syntax is that it is nestable.
