(just a warning).
$SHELL gives (in the case of tcsh/csh/bash) the shell you
opened the session with, not your current shell. This is a
real pain - I would have hoped that I'd get my current
shell. I have to run csh scripts at work and I'm always
invoking csh, editing and running scripts and then later
exiting. It's not easy to see which shell I'm in. At the
command prompt, I run setenv to see if it fails.
