Pronunciation guide for UNIX.
'interrobang' == best
asterslash = a post-guns'n'roses side project? slashterix is pretty cool too...
As a Mac guy who only learned Unix with the birth of OS X, I've long wondered... but been too sheepish to ask:
How do you pronounce "tcsh"?
And what about "sudo"?
Hm. Thanks for the response. I have heard people say sudo as "sue-doo" as in "superuser do". Sue-doe made more sense to me, as in psuedo.(nym)
I've also heard "tcsh" pronounced "teesh" (and "csh" as "seesh"), but they're in the minority. It's been suggested that "tcsh" ought to be pronounced "You really ought to switch to bash now that it has programmable completion.", but it's a little unwieldy.
bash completion sux0rs
Programmers aren't meant to talk to others orally. Herein lies the problem.
