Since the shell is csh
, it's no wonder. The c-shell series is quite different in many ways from bourne-based ones like bash
. It may be some kind of argument expansion or something.
What's really strange to me is that the person used csh
in order to execute a ksh
script. Why not just execute it directly?
And if he has ksh
available, why isn't he using it instead, considering all the weaknesses
the c-shell has?
