- Subject: Recommend zsh
I always feel threatened when something I've spent ages learning
appears to be superceded. Anyway I made the plunge and switched from
bash to zsh (change cygwin.bat , zsh --login -i). I feared rewriting
all my existing scripts, but in fact they are still using a bash bang.
The transition was thus smooth.
So what's so great about zsh
use of ** to mean recurse subdirectories
chmod 644 **/*.html (recursive command)
rm -r **/junk
Intelligent Tab completion of practically everything
I'm still learning
I link that helped me
