Here are some shells:
- Bourne (sh): this is the original Unix shell, available in nearly every flavor of Unix.
- Korn (ksh): a backwards-compatible upgrade to the Bourne shell, developed by David G. Korn at AT&T Bell Laboratories.
- Bash (bash): Bourne-again shell, a public domain shell containing features of the Bourne, Korn and c-shell.
- C-Shell (csh) and T-C-Shell (tcsh): The c-shell is similar to C programming language; t-c-shell extends csh.
- Z-Shell (zsh): an open-source Unix shell.
