3: You could have a go when in command, but as I replaced Stephen’s, so I’ve now been displaced by Paul’s. What am I?

Click for a solution


You could have a go (have a bash) when in command (it’s a command shell), but as I replaced Stephen’s (bash was successor to Stephen Bourne’s shell, and is short for Bourne Again SHell), so I’ve now been displaced by Paul’s (zsh, originally developed by Paul Falstad, has now replaced bash in Terminal). What am I?

I look forward to your putting alternative cases.
