FIZSH(1)                                                              FIZSH(1)



NAME
       fizsh - Fizsh is a user friendly front end to zsh.

SYNOPSIS
       fizsh [OPTIONS] ... [ARGUMENTS] ...

DESCRIPTION
       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 syntax.

CONFIGURATION
       "$HOME/.fizsh/" is the directory where fizsh keeps its local
       configuration files. The file "$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",
       "hist_ignore_all_dups", "hist_reduce_blanks", "hist_ignore_space",
       "interactive_comments", "correct", "no_beep" and "prompt_subst".

       For further configuration details consult zsh's man pages

OPTIONS
       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 are welcome.

NOTES
       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 "fizsh" otherwise.
