       Body:
I would like forrest to work like a "normal" unix application app in unix.  And it's one less
thing for the user to do (and to mess up).

I think it's pretty rare for a system not to have bash installed.  And even if they don't
we can have a FAQ for the simple workaround of running it with 'sh' and setting FORREST_HOME

        Key: FOR-251
    Summary: start script for UNIX bin/forrest should not be bash-specific
       Type: Bug

     Status: Unassigned
   Priority: Major

    Project: Forrest
  Component: Core operations
    Fix For: 0.6
   Versions:
             HEAD

Description:
There are some commands in the bin/forrest script that are specific to the bash shell. On
most systems the default /bin/sh is actually bash. However, not so on one significant OS.
We should be neutral.

As a workaround the script has been set to be /bin/bash
