For some reason, vi is automatically launched when I open a new terminal. Any ideas?
What's in your .bash_profile file?
I don't have one. I never had a problem with it until today, after I tried making a shell script to move some files in a folder to another file. (not system files)
Are you sure? I thought .bash_profile was created automatically. Note the initial ".". I'm not sure of your terminal knowledge so don't take this personally, but an ordinary "ls" or Finder won't show files prefixed with ".". You need to "ls -la". But if you're trying to create scripts you would probably know that already.
No offense taken. I'm quite a familiar with Terminal, actually. I've never had to use a .bash_profile in Mac OS X, so I don't have one in my homedir. I tried making terminal run /usr/bin/login when I start a new terminal and the weird thing that I noticed is that it would send the user name "vi; exit" to the login script, instead of my real username. Any thoughts on this?
what does "env" show?
Nothing peculiar in env. I just need to somehow stop Terminal from sending the string 'vi; exit' upon launch.
I trashed the plist file, resetted the terminal, and everything is fine now. Thanks.
