-----------------------------------

             Summary: Converge Shell scripts on single implementation
                 Key: ACCUMULO-2423
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-2423
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 1.6.0
            Reporter: Mike Drob


Do we want to have a stated dependency on a particular shell? Most of our scripts explicitly
use bash, but some use sh. Most scripts invoke {{#!/usr/bin/env bash}} but some do {{#!/bin/bash}}
or other crazy things.

I don't have a particular preference which way we go, but I'd like to see us standardize one
way or the other.

If we use {{/bin/sh}}, then we can run everything through the [checkbashisms|https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DashAsBinSh#I_am_a_developer._How_can_I_avoid_this_problem_in_future.3F]
script (also available for other distros)

If we go the other way, and switch everything to bash, then we can run them through {{ksh
-n}} for deprecation warnings. I know that's a different shell, but they're still moderately
useful.
