  Non-Bourne Shells
  Non-Bourne Shells come in icky flavours
  /bin/csh - C Shell
  /bin/tcsh - C Shell w/ command line editing
  C-Shells are bad
  Inconsistant - aliases not always evaluated
  Incomplete - no stderr redirection
  Infuriating - can't include quotes in strings
  System administration requires knowledge of Bourne, so why learn CSH?
  CSH Programming considered harmful
