Setting environment variables

You use different commands to set the environment variables depending on whether you are using the Bourne shell (bsh or sh), Korn shell (ksh), or C shell (csh). To determine the current shell, use the echo command:

echo $SHELL

The Bourne-shell path is /bin/bsh or /bin/sh. The Korn shell path is /bin/ksh. The C-shell path is /bin/csh.
