RE: Changing Your Shell - Was: Learning What I Need To Know About Basic Linux

Hi Bill,
Do you mean below that the current process is running and that you are running 
possibly a different shell inside of that process?

Thanks.

Linux

If your system administrator won't make the change for you or he/she is
taking too long you can always do the following after logging on:

        exec ksh

- or whichever shell you prefer.

By using "exedc" you are instructing Linux/Unix  to execute that program as
part of the current (shell) process.  Be careful using "exec" with a
terminating program (I.e., "exec ls") because that will terminate your login
session when that terminating program exits.
