@klaatu so just about finished with your latest episode and I have a question.

Do you see any advantages of csh/tcsh over other shells? I was reading through some docs about it and it looks very nice, but I have never tried using it. It seems much more readable to me (who has a slight obsession with C), but it is not as similar to C as I would have thought.

Just wondered about your specific thoughts on that particular shell.

@herag I have a hacker public radio episode coming out about tcsh, so I'll defer to that.

Short answer though: no. I like Tcsh for nostalgic reasons, but pragmatically Bash just makes more sense, IMHO.
