New since V2.9:
* Fixed all known Enforcer hits
* Other bugfixes
* Freeware, no payment required !
* Usage is similar (or better) to the standard AmigaDOS shell.
* Has 68 built-in commands including all often needed commands,
so no disk access is necessary.
eg. list, dir, cd, assign, delete, copy, move, path, info, type
* About 36K small (pure assembler code)
* Starting from Workbench (!) or CLI. No installation needed.
* ANONYMOUS PIPES. You can choose between real and pseudo pipes.
* Fast FILENAME COMPLETION by simply pressing TAB; shows all matches.
* REVIEW buffer to see again what scrolled out of the window.
* Some commands and debugging features for PROGRAMMERS.
* ONLINE HELP function and AmigaGuide documentation with examples.
* Support of OS2.0+ and OS3.0+ specific stuff.
* LOCALIZED using standard shell's catalog file.
* Can open its own screen
* Wild cards and recursive processing.
* Real RUN and NEWCLI command that reenters ZShell quickly.
* 100% script compatibility
* DIR and LIST both sort (by default) and show file sizes.
ZShell is a small (36K), fast and powerful Shell with many (68)
built-in commands. So it replaces most of the commands in the C:
directory (like LIST, COPY etc.) which saves disk space and
reduces disk accesses. There is NO way around ZShell for those
who do not have a hard disk or still have Kickstart 1.2/1.3 !
But it is very useful for those with a better Kickstart and/or
hard disk, too, because for example it has powerful editing &
history, filename completion, pipes, review buffer, some
Kickstart 2.0/3.0 specific features and a lovely LIST command.
I have tried to make ZShell compatible to the standard shell, not
just another UN*X shell clone, but with some features known from
UN*X shells. I especially have taken care that it is easy to use.
ZShell is very useful for programmers, because it has things like
showing EXEC-lists and the task list, memory dumping and other
things you usually find in debuggers.
You can switch off the internal command-line-editor to use
ZShell with console handlers like KingCON.
