Bash shell and jot
Authored by: bsletten on Dec 02, '01 05:04:12PM

You are correct, that didn't make a whole lot of sense, but it should still work. I guess I was thinking that anyone with a leaning toward Bourne shells would have installed bash (as opposed to the default shell with OS X). bash and sh have the same basic programmatic syntax at least as far as the examples were concerned. I was anticipating that people playing around with it might get confused typing the shell constructs into a csh interpreter and miss the larger issue of learning jot. I also expected them to play around interactively so I wasn't worried about making sure they built scripts properly....

Oh well.
