First of all, pardon me for raising fundamental query.
I like now about default shell available in terminal mode.
It seems it is dash and NOT bash, as /usr/bin/sh links to /usr/bin/dash.
Is my premise correct?
If so in what way dash differs from bash?
Is any web link available to documentation on features and use of dash?
I have found this wierd too.
Although I did not find any discernible difference during normal user operations, (looks like dash reads the .bashrc file too ;-)),
I got into some issues when compiling a source code.
Unlinking /bin/sh and linking it to /bin/bash solved the problem for me.
