My memory of commercial Unix systems is that the source command
came from csh whereas the '.' syntax came from Bourne shell, it's
just that BASH has implemented "source" from csh. Here's what
happens on the development version of the next release of Ubuntu:
samuel at eris:~$ /bin/sh
$ source /etc/profile
/bin/sh: source: not found
That's dash, the Debian POSIX shell implementation, not bash.
Tom Christiansen's classic "Csh Programming Considered Harmful" from the
mid '90s is also worth a read:
