fizsh - Fizsh is a user friendly front end to zsh.
fizsh [OPTIONS] ... [ARGUMENTS] ...
Fizsh provides zsh with interactive syntax-highlighting and a MATLAB-like
history-search. Fizsh is intended to look and feel similar to fish. A
distinguishing feature is that fizsh can handle Bourne compatible syntax. This
is because fizsh is a front end to zsh. Fish does not handle Bourne compatible
"$HOME/.fizsh/" is the directory where fizsh keeps its local
configuration files. The file "$HOME/.fizsh/.fizshrc" serves as the
user's local startup script. Local customizations, such as aliases and
functions, can be added here. This file allows the same syntax as
"$HOME/.zshrc" under zsh. "$HOME/.fizsh/.fizsh_history" is
the name of fizsh's history file. The other files in "$HOME/.fizsh"
are installed when the user runs "/usr/bin/fizsh" for the first
time. These files are automatically overwritten after installing a newer
version of Fizsh. The user may call the function "fizsh-reinstall"
to force a reinstallation of his local configuration files.
Compared to the default configuration of zsh, fizsh additionally sets the
options "append_history", "inc_append_history",
"correct", "no_beep" and "prompt_subst".
For further configuration details consult zsh's man pages
Fizsh is usually invoked without options and without command-line arguments.
The only supported command-line options are "--version",
"--help", "--login", shorthands for these commands are
"-v", "-h", "-l" respectively.
"--version" yields fizsh's version number. "--help" causes
fizsh to print brief usage information. "--login" causes fizsh to
run as a login shell.
If invoked with other command-line options and/or arguments fizsh will silently
revert to zsh. =head1 BUGS
There are no known bugs at the moment. Bug reports, bug fixes and other comments
Fizsh will run as a login shell if it is invoked with the "-l", or if
it is started by the "login" program. If fizsh is run as a login
shell "$0" will be set to "-fizsh". "$0" will be
