JCF: Right.  It also clearly says "The historic -increment option has been
JCF: deprecated but is still supported in this implementation," which means
JCF: nice -20 lowers priority, and nice --20 raises it.

Actually, "nice --20" gives

	nice: unknown option -- -
	usage: nice [ -n increment ] utility [ argument ...]

But yeah, the point's taken :)

.*csh seem to have nice built in (and sense-reversed) while [^c]*sh
do not.

Just as a sanity check...

Assignment:  Think about and expound upon the possibilities of these two

    b)  the Stock Market had not crashed? (economical/political implications)
