 Shell Overview

Daemon News tells us about Shells.

"Although the Bourne shell was the first and very simple, it became the model for many following shells; also, later versions of /bin/sh were much improved. The Bourne shell did not have a command history, job control, command line completion or aliasing capability. It did, however, have the ability to use shell "functions" that were defined in the shell's initialization file, ~/.profile."
