I reckon this has to be one of the most persistent "marketing" lies in
the history of Unix.  Does anyone really think that csh syntax bears any
resemblance to C?

My favourite shell, rc, really does have a passably C-like syntax.  It's
also cool in many other ways, but I would say that, wouldn't I?  :-)
