    Steve Bourne, wrote the Bourne shell which appeared in the Seventh Edition Bell Labs Research version of Unix.
    Many other shells have been written; this particular tutorial concentrates on the Bourne and the Bourne Again shells.
    Other shells include the Korn Shell (ksh), the C Shell (csh), and variations such as tcsh.
    This tutorial does not cover those shells. Maybe a future version will cover ksh; I do not intend to write a tutorial for csh, as csh programming is considered harmful. external link
