    According to the tsch website:
    Tcsh is an enhanced, but completely compatible version of the Berkeley UNIX C shell (csh)
    The % sign does not necessarily mean that the shell is csh. I use Zsh and the prompt uses % instead of $ like sh, bash and ksh.

    1. Take a look at http://zsh.dotsrc.org/ to find out more about ZSH.
    2. Yes csh and tcsh are related to C programming and thats why many C programmers like them.
    3. Code:
      echo $SHELL
      or
      Code:
      echo $0
    4. Not sure what you mean here, so can you give more info.
