Re: Consider zsh
Just respont to J.H.M. Dassen (Ray) in
I have using Zsh as my default shell for over a year. It really the most powerful Shell that I see and got many attractive feature...
However, some people complain that the zsh using too much resouces (I run it in my school server - SunOS) , then I was forced
to use back tcsh.
Now, I think Shell needn't to be so powerful. So I happy with the Bash.
Have Z shell impove it loading recently? coz my last Z Shell is 2.4 and haven't us it for 1-2 years :P
tcsh vs bash
Sorry for reply so late. I point out the pain on using diff shell on
interactive and programming shell script coz I saw the first comment on tcsh. I have using tcsh for a long time and admit that it really a very GOOD shell. But I really feel tired to remeber the C Shell syntax when I edit .login or .tcshrc. runing bash/ksh on fly is also not a good solution. The function in bash is already enought to me and I prefer to use the memory in my mind to store another stuff.
But, anyway, that only my own opinion. If you really like tcsh very much, just threat what I said as rubbish. NO FLAME :-)
P.S. I would like to see that the discription of tcsh mention that T really mean TENEX in tcsh (man tcsh for detail). Coz I heard some one talk about TUBRO C SHELL, really make me sick
