When I log into a server running SunOS 5.10, my prompt initially is "-bash-3.2$"
Then when I run the following commands, I can see that the prompt is slightly different after typing
bash (it no longer begins with a dash), yet echo $SHELL gives the same result.
-bash-3.2$ echo $SHELL /bin/bash -bash-3.2$ bash bash-3.2$ echo $SHELL /bin/bash
What does this mean, and what implications does it have?
