Me too.  Wasn't the method then to have sh scripts start with non-#,
e.g. colon, and then csh/tcsh would spot that and run them under sh?
All pre-#!, of course.

(I was a csh, then tcsh user for many years.  Finally moving to bash as
it gave !-history and `set -o vi' command-line editing.)

Cheers, Ralph.
