No `#'? How about just always send to the user's shell from the
password entry with a -c, as distinct from /bin/sh.
The problem is that some people (at least in the Elder TImes) would
have their login shell set to /bin/csh but they'd want their scripty
things done in /bin/sh. (I used to do that myself, way back when csh
had ! history and sh didn't until it became bash).
Me too. Wasn't the method then to have sh scripts start with non-#,
e.g. colon, and then csh/tcsh would spot that and run them under sh?
All pre-#!, of course.
(I was a csh, then tcsh user for many years. Finally moving to bash as
it gave !-history and `set -o vi' command-line editing.)
