Outdated, as far as I can tell (from the attached screenshot): 

> … FreeBSD uses tcsh(1) as the default root shell, …

Ideally <https://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/shells.html> should make clear that csh(1) is the default.

Hmmm, csh and tcsh is the same thing on FreeBSD AFAIK. The difference is purely historical at this point.

I'm closing this ticket for now as I see no way proceed.
