shells and bells

If you love vi, you'll love csh.  Otherwise, stick with bash.

If you want a free SQL database on Linux, use PostgreSQL and do not waste
time with any of the other stuff floating around.  PostgreSQL is the only
free SQL server which has essential features such as on-line backup and
transaction support.  You can access PostgreSQL from nearly any language,
and there is support for C/C++, Perl, Python, and Java among many others.  
There is a "psql" tool which allows manual manipulation of the database,
such as creation of tables and definitions of schemas, but it actually
will allow issuing any query.  See for info.
