General Development If you don't want to commit to the idiosyncrasies of a specific shell running on a particular platform, try the Squirrel Shell. The Squirrel Shell provides an advanced, object-oriented scripting language that works equally well on UNIX, Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows systems. Write a script once, and run it anywhere.

"Run it anywhere" where "anywhere" is "Machines that have squirrelsh installed" which sounds awfully like another way of saying "Run it almost nowhere". How is this preferable to perl or bash, which at least have the advantage of being in the default installs of a large number of machines?
