How can I run an alternate shell in the CAEN Linux environment?

/bin/bash is the default shell on all CAEN Linux computers.

To run an alternative shell, for example csh, type /bin/csh -l at the prompt. Otherwise, if you'd like csh to replace the current shell in a prompt or window, type exec csh.
