[McIDAS #XGH-901821]: Default shell in mcenv running within a bash shell script



Hi Kwan,

re:

I think so.

re:
> It appears that csh is the default?

You should test this by running 'mcenv' from the command line 
and then run 'echo $SHELL'.

re:
> i.e. Can I run shell commands inside mcenv in a shell script?

You should be able to.  Whether or not all of the environment
variables defined outside of the 'mcenv' session are still
defined the way they were is in question.  Like checking which
shell is running ('echo $SHELL'), these can/should be checked
to make sure that the environment is setup like you want.

Cheers,

Tom
