Nothing. Shell scripts are scripts written in the language of the shell you are using. There are a number of different shells, ranging from bash and korn shells (ksh) to cshell and bourne shell. Korn shell is just that, a shell and a korn shell script is a script written using the korn shell language.

To see which shells your system supports type the following at the command line:

  1. cat /etc/shells
  2.
