Command Line (Shells)
The latest, stable versions of the
GNU Bourne-Again Shell (bash),
and Extended C-Shell (tcsh) are included in SCO OpenServer Release 6.0.0.
Documentation for each of the shells,
including man pages and texinfo help, is provided when
the shells are installed.
GNU Bourne-Again Shell (bash) version 3.0
This popular shell from the GNU Project
is a feature-rich shell that is largely
IEEE POSIX P1003.2 compliant.
It has most features of the Korn Shell (ksh)
and is well suited to interactive use. Most existing
shell scripts should run correctly with bash.
Z-Shell (zsh) version 4.2
This shell is best suited for interactive usage.
It has highly programmable command and filename completion,
is most compatible with the Korn Shell (ksh),
and has features that C-shell (csh) users
will find familiar. It also has a full FTP
client that you can assess with built-in shell commands,
as well as a number of additional loadable modules.
You can extend zsh with other third-party
modules at any time.
Extended C-Shell (tcsh) version 6.13
This is a Berkeley C-shell (csh) compatible shell
with many improvements, bug fixes, and command line editing
capabilities. Note that the SCO version of csh
behaves differently from other implementations of csh
(including tcsh) in the implementation of the ||
and && operators.
