Z Shell Options
The Z Shell (zsh) combines many features of the Bourne Again, TC, and C Shells. In addition, zsh incorporates a number of new features. Because of the large number of features and configuration options available in zsh, this chapter concentrates on the most common ones and skips some of the more obscure ones. This chapter also explains how to customize zsh to meet your needs. If you have used csh or tcsh before, you can configure zsh to behave much the same way as csh and tcsh. If you have used the Korn Shell, setting up zsh to work like ksh may be useful to you.
