V6 Thompson Shell Port is an open source command-line software written in C and designed to provide two ports of the original /bin/sh from the Sixth Edition (V6) UNIX from 1975.

This project includes the sh6 utility, which is an unenhanced port of the V6 UNIX shell, the glob6 utility, which is a port of its global command, and osh, an enhanced and backward-compatible port of the Sixth Edition Thompson shell.

Together, the glob6 and sh6 utilities provide a command-line user interface that is backward compatible with that provided by the V6 Thompson shell and global command.
