More on Shells

My Chosen Prompts:

bash on Red Hat Enterprise Linux:

bash on RHEL 5

Ignore the blue border – I’m using my mom’s windoze box today.  The green “green” is the current SANS ISC INFOCON, updated every 10 minutes.  The rest is the default bash prompt for RHEL out of the box.  “imbrius” is my username, “dustpuppy” is the hostname, and ~ is the current directory (~ is shorthand for the user’s home directory).

csh on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (looks the same on Solaris):

chs On RHEL 5

csh On RHEL 5

I love C shell for doing batch job work.  This is the default C shell prompt for System V machines (Irix, HP-UX, Solaris, Tru64, AIX, SCO OpenServer, etc.).  On RHEL, I had to use tcsh (the TENEX C Shell) modified to look and act like csh.  “dustpuppy” is the host name and 7 is the current command history level (i.e. the number of commands this shell has executed so far).

ksh on Solaris:

ksh on Solaris 10

ksh on Solaris 10

ksh is Solaris’s default Bourne-compliant shell.  It’s Sun’s answer to bash.  It follows the KISS philosophy in that the prompt is nothing more than a Bourne $.

zsh on Red Hat Enterprise Linux:

zsh on RHEL 5

zsh combines the best of bash, ksh, and tcsh.
