Run a C Shell using only Bash shell


I have only bash on my system. And I want to run a C shell... Is there a way for that?

It seems to me that you cannot a program which you don't have. Physically impossible.

However, if you do have the C binary, it is not more difficult than issuing the command for C shell (I think it is csh) on the bash command line. You can start one shell from within another shell.

Just curious... why would you want to run a C shell instead of bash?
