[PD] [OT] OSX command lines

I dunno about 10.3 but 10.2 uses tcsh by default. This is a shell I really
don't like. other shells may be installed and you can always change your
terminal to use one of those.

Of course this will just change the internal shell commands. as for find (I
don't really use locate) it may be an older version? I've only used it this
way (I think on linux and OSX):

find [path] -name "*blah*" -print

but I don't use the advanced features!


PS: I'm sure there are loads of OSX "bibles" on the market now, even a linux
switcher one I'm sure.
