 c-shell as a command language rather than a programming language

This question is well covered in the "Csh Programming Considered Harmful"
posting by  Tom Christiansen. This is (or was?) a regular post in the
following groups:,comp.unix.questions,comp.unix.programmer,news.answers

Basically, I'd say that a good command language would provide features
for working on the command line (like command history), while a good
programming tool would provide good programming features (like error
handling and logging) and portability.

Please refer to Tom Christiansen's post!

When searching for the article I couldn't find it!? My saved copy
is dated Oct 1993. Is it still being posted?
