A point here for bash scripting. I earlier used to shebang with the path
to bash :
Since my scripts sometimes needed to be ported to Linux and/or Cygwin, I
often hacked the system with a symlink /bin/bash that pointed to the
actual bash. Then I would use the symlink path - that worked under both
FreeBSD and Linux.
But a much better way now exists with env :
The above shabang always works, no matter what the system, is fully
portable, and is not too much typing either.
