Thank you, Peter. I've been a huge fan of bash for years on my Linux desktop machines, so I'll check out WikiSh. I've also been a fan of Hans' work so I'll check out Fox - I remember it being quite popular.

Probably the 2 most popular forms processors are Fox and PmForms. Personally I like the flexibility of WikiSh, but it's got a learning curve if you aren't familiar with the Bourne Shell scripting language.
