Bash shell and jot
Authored by: pmccann on Dec 01, '01 12:14:24PM

This can't be correct or our beloved osx boxes wouldn't boot! All 'dem shell scripts executed at startup (all with "#!/bin/sh" as their opening play) would just vanish in a flash of incompatible syntax.

/bin/sh can't be tcsh, but is of course ye olde worlde Bourne shell (as distinct from bash).

The shell scripts listed in the article should work fine post entering "/bin/sh" (or even just "sh" if you haven't changed your default PATH).

Just for the archive!
