Thanks for your helpful article.
I am a novice user of unix, and have been using linux lately at work. There, I have been using the bash shell, like most linux users. I knwo the differences between the two shelIs are not huge, but as a novice, even small differences really slow me down. I am wondering if it is adviasable to install bash on my mac as well, or are there osx specific tweaks to tcsh on osx that I will miss the advantage of, or is there functionality accessible only through tcsh.


Any insight would be helpful.


Thanks,
