    DISCLAIMER: Introduction By this time it should be already old news that /bin/sh has become the new default shell instead of /bin/csh.

    Bash Python script I made to create a menu in the terminal window

    Hi! I am using csh and I notice that I cannot see the command history. That is, I open a terminal, write a command, close it, and when I reopen it, it is clean. No history. How can I have the history there to speed up the writing?

    Increase terminal font with allscreens?

    How do I increase the terminal font size by using the allscreens variable in rc.conf? In my file, I have allscreens_flags="green" which sets the font to green. If this is put into /boot/loader.conf, will these settings occur sooner during boot up?
