Installing with bash

Back in October I put forth this post about this tutorial I wrote for installing the Astronomy-aware Unix Calculator under OS X but back then I wrote it for the tcsh shell.

Yesterday I wrote about defining aliases in bash.

Today I got off my ass and combined the two like chocolate and peanut butter. I've updated the Installing under Mac OS X tutorial to support bash as well. Seems only fair since bash comes with OS X and all.

Tip: In the tutorial I suggest aliasing to 'calc' but I, in practice, alias to '?' which is a svelt three characters less. Give it a whirl, you'll like it.
