in thread The three virtues of Perl are CONFLICTING!

Hmmmm... I'm a firm believer that bash is the one true shell. However, I usually install tcsh on all the boxes I setup, just for those people who prefer tcsh, and so that any shell scripts written in tcsh still work. As with most things I take the approach of each to his own.

I think it's just plain idiotic to have /bin/sh point to /bin/tcsh (it's probably worse than not having bash installed at all) - it will break scripts bad, real bad!

I have come across some system scripts written in ksh. That was kinda nasty, not exactly a standard shell, I had to install it on 30 odd machines once they had been deployed. Just as well I had written an automatic software distribution system! (Yes, I rewrote the wheel...)

[Corion]: Yay! As I had to reset my phone again, I now also back up my SMS automatically. Highly conveniently, there is a program to back up my SMS to my IMAP server as mails ;)
[1nickt]: Corion this is an android phone? If so, are you encountering problems with recent upgrades? Lately my phone dies suddenly quite often, seemingly coredumps caused by interaction of two actions, eg phone playing a sound and user swiping simultaneously :-/
[Corion]: 1nickt: Yeah, it's Android, but it's CM 11, so fairly old. I'm looking for a newer (china) phone, but I think I'll wait until Oreo ROMs get out for them
[Corion]: Otherwise, the Vernee Mars looks tempting
[Corion]: ... but alas, no Oreo support in sight yet, and I prefer to flash a stock Android over the custom ROMs, and Oreo promises to make the userland more maintainable.
[LanX]: Corion: shouldn't pmdev have permission to view code of nodelets?
[1nickt]: And of course everything is "unlocked" in EU, right?
[1nickt]: I think there are far more choices than in the US
LanX You don't have access to  Function Nodelet.
