For IRIX, you can get a pre-compiled copy of bash from
http://freeware.sgi.com/ which will install it as
/usr/freeware/bin/bash. If the host is running IRIX6.5 or later, the
admin may have installed the "gnu" package, which includes bash (as
/usr/gnu/bin/bash). There are ways to install it in your homedir if
you don't have admin priviledges (or can' convince the admin to
install it). see the "-r /root" option to inst/swmgr.
