ok, started on zsh this weekend (more free time and all that, natch).
features i've likes so far:
i think recently redhat has started putting /bin in the path prior to
/usr/bin. this is annoying since it hides /usr/bin/vi from /bin/vi.
so i do this:
typeset -U path # makes sure all elements are unique
for f in $path; do
if [[ $f != /bin ]]; then
this puts /bin at the end. where it belongs in my opinon. any zsh
wizards know a better way?
prompts are always fun. this gives user at host(time or ding on the hour)%
on the left hand side, the current dir on the right.
lastly there's the multios option. ah. so instead of this:
cat foo bar | some.cmd
grep foo bar | tee foo.in.bar | less
you can do:
some.cmd < foo < bar
grep foo bar > foo.in.bar | less
and finally there's autocd. instead of cd .. , you can just do .. .
kevin, typing just that little bit less...
