Is there a command to check which shell is running currently?
(running 4.2)

Try:

echo $SHELL

that should state the current shell, unless a script has changed it.

Normally FreeBSD starts with csh, you can install bash/ksh/zsh if you don't like csh.

Have fun...

ps ax |grep csh

Keep in mind csh in FreeBSD is actually tcsh (or so i've been informed)

amen brutha (tcsh == total rockness)

Default FreeBSD's csh might emulate tcsh since it appears to be the most widely used shell....yet you still have to install tcsh...how odd....=/
