new shell time?
Maybe time to try the fish shell again
Stephen Michael Kellat shared this.Show all 7 repliesThere is one of those rants. When I ran FreeBSD, I'm pretty sure csh was the default shell. Maybe they've fixed whatever the issue was with scripts. Even when I use csh/tcsh my (very limited) scripts use sh (on Debian, usually symlinked to dash). Maybe I should specifically look for dash.
I tried zsh briefly, but it had too many unexpected behaviors. I could get used to it if I used it for a while, but I think I'm going to give fish a shot.(t)csh is a perfectly acceptable interactive shell, but all C shell derivatives are terrible scripting environments.
Replace pdksh with (mksh), which is maintained and has bugfixes. Also consider ksh93, the maintained very functional direct descendant of the original Korn shell (and indeed still maintained by David Korn). The code for ksh93 isn't especially pretty... but it isn't the massive disaster area that the code for bash is (Bash is *STILL* entirely K&R style Pre-ANSI C!)

Yes, this is public! =)
The "scary warning" is how the web interface works. If you notice the URL bar, you'll see you're going to a different service. With clients like Pumpa and Dianara you can just enter their address without giving any permissions to other servers.
Also, to follow someone who just followed you, you can simply go to your Followers tab and follow from there.
