Hey George, if you want to play around with a real Bourne shell (to
see just how compatible your scripts are), try out the heirloom sh.


Don't `make install', though, unless you don't like your current
/bin/sh! I installed it on anduin in my home directory as jsh to play
around. I haven't gotten around to installing it on my home box.

It's a lot of fun to find out how not compatible your scripts are. :)
Much easier to just say /bin/bash this.
