Most of the points made in the FAQ about scripting large `applications'
with csh ring a bell for me. Now, having said that, /bin/sh is nice for
small to medium-sized scripts, but there is a certain point where even
sh(1) becomes annoying.
Do you have any _particular_ parts of the csh-whynot article that you
would like to discuss, or this is a free for all flame? :)
