How does one change the default shell?
Thu Sep 2 22:29:00 GMT 2010
I use pdksh as my login shell - I have been using the Korn shell (thanks
Dave!) since 1984 or so, so it is what I am used to and has features I
haven't been able to find in bash - at least not yet. So to expedite
script writing, I use the ksh language and features Every time that I
write a script, I have to remember to put in the shebang line
(#!/bin/pdksh) or half the time my scripts won't work.
Is there a way to change the default shell for cygwin? I checked the user
guide and the FAQ, but no joy there. I tried setting and exporting the
SHELL variable, but that did not work.
