Hey, I just wanted to ask which shells you use for
1) scripting
2) interactive

Also: is anybody here using a non-standard shell (not bash…)?

I am using fish (friendly interactive shell) interactively (surprise!) and rc (the plan 9 shell) for programing.

1) es
2) es

It's a shell that follow's 95% of rc's syntax and is portable across many Unices. I would use rc from p9p but it's too foreign for the environment I work with.

If Im not using es im using mksh.

@dsplayer14: Nice, I have never seen anybody use es, but I guess it's a good choice.
@venam: okay, going to read that one. EOT
